Self Guided Walking Holidays in the UK

Walking and trekking is deeply rooted in our DNA. And we believe that one of the best ways to uncover our nation’s fascinating history and traditions is on a walking holiday in the UK.

Our self-guided walking holidays allow you to discover the unique cultures, charms and distinct local flavours each part of the United Kingdom has to offer by using local leaders where possible and staying in accommodation that exudes British local flair at its best.

On our 5-night Jewels of the Jurassic Coast Self-Guided trip, we explore England’s first natural World Heritage Site. Extending from Exmouth in East Devon to the quaint seaside town of Swanage in Dorset, this historic route hugs the fossil-rich coastline which encompasses 185 million years of the Earth’s history in under 100 miles, alongside some of the best English villages and world-renowned tea rooms.

If you’re wanting to see historic train tracks, rugged mountain landscapes and breath-taking World Heritage Castles, our Walking the Welsh Highland Railway trip doesn’t disappoint. On this UK Walking Holiday, enjoy an exhilarating hike to the domineering Snowdon summit in Snowdonia National Park and journey on sections of the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway to picturesque villages that have retained their ancient mother tongue and fascinating Welsh culture.

Looking for some inspiration in your own backyard? Why not take a leaf from renowned writers like Wordsworth, Ransome and Potter, on our Literary Self-Guided Walking in the Lake District trip and discover Britain’s world-famous lakes, babbling brooks and delicious local Cumbrian fare on this 6-night walking holiday, where you can explore at your own pace on this unforgettable Walking Holiday in the UK.
