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.

2. Lizard Peninsula Coast

This is the southernmost point of England - Lizard Peninsula. A picturesque area dotted with bays and tiny old fishing villages. 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.

3. West Highland Way

West Highland Way offers a walk from the town of Milngavie, near Glasgow, through the spectacular beauty of Loch Lomond and the distant desert of Rannoch Moor. The trail at Fort William ends at the foot of the largest mountain in Britain - Ben Nevis.

Walking along a 154 km long trail can take about a week. At the same time, there is an opportunity to walk along military routes that offer a stunning view of the mountain landscape.

5. Coniston Round

The Lake District National Park, famous for its hard-to-reach mountains, glacial lakes and market towns, is one of the most popular places in England, and the stunning Coniston Round takes pride of place among the most spectacular routes with superb landscapes.

The walk begins with the beautiful village of Coniston, then the route allows you to explore the trails from Coniston Fells to Old Man of Coniston, and get to Gray Friar, the most remote the top in Coniston Falls, with a stunning view of the surrounding waterfalls.

6. Kintyre Way

The delightful, untouched and impenetrable territory of the Kintyre Peninsula is located along the shoreline of Scotland. The route may seem difficult, especially for untrained beginners, but the spectacular beauty of nature is worth the effort.

The route is zigzagged from the town of Tarbeth to Machrihanish through diverse landscapes: hills, lakes and the coast dotted with tiny fishing towns.

On sunny days, a magnificent view opens up to the majestic mountains of Arran and even to Northern Ireland.

Location: Kintyre Way, Scotland.

7. Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail

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.

The most difficult part of the route runs from St Dogmaels to Newport, because there are many steep hills and huge cliffs. This is an ideal option for experienced tourists.

Location: Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail.

8. Cotswold Way National Trail

Cotswold Way National Trail, 160 km away from the scenic countryside of Britain, is an exciting route through villages, green hills and historic sites.

The trip can take from seven to ten days. At your disposal are several circular routes, such as Winchcombe and Belas Knap, starting from the market town of Winchcombe.

9. Edale to Crowden, Pennine Way

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.

The route is quite complicated, as it passes through a wild, untouched by civilization area, but the beautiful panoramic views of the Peak District are worth the effort.

Location: Edale to Crowden, Pennine Way.

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.

The route runs along the coastline, where the underground system of tunnels of the Second World War survived. In sunny weather, do not forget to climb to the top to get a glimpse of the English Channel and admire the breathtaking view of France.
