Guided Walking Holidays in the United Kingdom

Discover Great Britain on a walking trip with a professional guide

We have a selection of guided Coast to Coast walking holidays in the United Kingdom that are led by experienced leaders in small groups. Our guided walking holidays allow you to enjoy the benefits of an experienced guide, whose passion is to bring to life the flora, fauna and history of the regions you travel through. 

Encompassing the diverse histories, cultures and landscapes of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, the United Kingdom forms a destination so rich and so varied that it must sit prominently on any travel bucket list. While the United Kingdom's energetic cities need no introduction, many travellers are unaware of the breadth and the beauty of its landscapes. With its medieval towns and sleepy fishing villages, ancient forests, dramatic coastline and scenic countryside dotted with castles, chateaux and Roman ruins, the UK is the perfect place to head out and explore by foot. 

Your guide will work tirelessly to tailor the trip to your interests while ensuring your holiday runs smoothly. Depending on the trip you choose, group sizes will vary from 4 to 14 clients. Share your experiences and make new friends as you enjoy the best the United Kingdom has to offer.
