Hadrian’s Wall – The wall built by the Romans is an important part of British history, and a walk along this vast structure that dates back hundreds of years is humbling. You will also see other Roman structures on your route, such as the traditional forts. It is also a fantastic part of the countryside to enjoy, Northumberland and Cumbria are stunning in the winter months.
Anglesey Coast – This walk around the isle of Anglesey in North Wales is a great way to get close to nature. The island is home to the rare red squirrels and the island takes the conservation of these adorable native mammals seriously. The entire walk is 125 miles, but you don’t have to do the whole thing! It takes in beautiful coastal views, moorland and woodland.
White Cliffs of Dover – These iconic cliffs were a beacon of hope in war time Britain and have remained one of the most recognisable natural emblems of the UK. Walk along these beautiful cliffs during the winter months from Langdon in Kent to Foreland Lighthouse. The walk is around four miles and you will be rewarded with some fantastic views, so it is best to do on a clear winter’s day.
