3 Amazing Places to Hike in the UK


Across the UK, there are many fantastic landscapes and incredible places to hike. Whether you’re looking for flat salt marshes in the South East of the country, dark foreboding mountains in Scotland or fresh moorlands and uplands, the UK has you covered. Check out these three great hiking destinations, where you’re sure to get loads of fabulous walking and stunning views.

The Lake District, North West, UK

The Lake District is world famous as a realm of beautiful hills, mountains and lakes. For centuries, it has inspired artists and writers, who have celebrated the wild and rugged landscapes found within this national park. Head to Lake Windermere if you’re looking for gentler, lakeside walks, or visit the town of Keswick for the starting point of many longer, tougher hikes.

Exmoor, South West, UK

Exmoor is ideal if you’re after some gentler hill walking with some incredible views of the sea. Climb Exmoor’s highest point of Dunkery Beacon, and admire the views out over the Bristol Channel, towards the Gower peninsula in Wales. Turn in the opposite direction, and you’ll be able to see another of Devon’s hill ranges, the wild and rugged Dartmoor.

The South Downs, South East, UK

The South East are a chain of chalky hills in the South East of England. If you’re visiting the charming city of Brighton, walks on the South Downs are accessible with a half-hour drive out of the city. For a longer challenge, tackle the hundred-mile-long South Downs Way – it starts in Winchester and ends in Eastbourne, and takes in some of the most archetypal English countryside.
