Discovering Britain on Foot

Discovering Britain is a wonderful resource for finding guided walks in the UK. Created by the Royal Geographical Society, Discovering Britain can help you find interesting walks by location, by length of walk or by type of landscape (urban, rural and coastal).

Each of the walks in Discovering Britain includes an interactive mapped route. These routes are displayed on an Ordnance Survey map and include map markers which provide information about points of interest that you will encounter on the walk.

Most of the walks also include a 'written guide', which you can print out to take on your walk. These written guides provide a map, detailed directions and great information about what you will see and discover on your walk.

A few of of the walks in Discovering Britain also have audio guides available for download. These audio guides provide a narrated description of your walk and the points of interest that you will encounter.
