10 most beautiful places for walking in the UK

Britain can boast of magnificent landscapes, which all want to explore. We suggest you familiarize yourself with the top 10 most colorful and picturesque routes for many days and less long hikes.

1. Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail

Hadrian's Wall - border wall, built in 122 BC for the protection of Roman England from Scotland. It extends for 135 km from Tyneside to Bowness-on-Solway. In 2003, it was given the status of the National Trail, and in 2011 - the title "the best long track of the UK."

A full six-day route along the wall runs through wild swamps, countryside, the lively cities of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Carlisle, important historic sites such as the Housesteads with an excellently preserved Roman fortress.

Travelers can relax in several beautiful villages that meet on the way.

The coastline, from the beautiful town of Porthleven and to the village of Helford, is considered one of the most beautiful places in England. The peninsula has become home to rare representatives of flora and fauna, so nature lovers will find something to see, especially in the summer months.

Located 300 km from the most impressive coastline of Britain, Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail offers a variety of seascapes: from towering cliffs and rocky arches to wide sandy beaches and picturesque seaside towns.

A staggering 431 km long route from the Peak District to the Kirk Yetholm village on the Scottish border, in 1965, was the first national trail.

10. South Foreland Lighthouse Walk

Picturesque and shorter than the previous, the route South Foreland Lighthouse Walk is ideal for beginners and inexperienced tourists. The trail passes along the southeast coast of England in one of the most colorful landscapes of the country - White Cliffs of Dover.
