Self Guided Walking Holidays in the United Kingdom

Discover the United Kingdom on a self guided walking tour

A brilliant destination for city lovers and countrysiders alike, the United Kingdom has a diverse range of attractions and activities to offer travellers. Self guided walks, multi-day treks and long distance walks opportunities abound. Walkers' Britain are proud to present over 20 years of self guided walking holidays through the countryside of England, Scotland and Wales.

Our United Kingdom self guided walking holidays offer an eclectic mix of rocky coastline, rolling hillsides and craggy mountains. Our aim is to include all the elements that make up this green isle, including the opportunity to visit ancient castles, country gardens, sample a typical cream tea, relax over a pint of ale, and lunch on an armful of fish 'n' chips wrapped in paper! 

Some of the most popular walking routes in the UK include the Coast to Coast, Cotswolds, Dorset and Wessex trails, West Highland Way, Pennine Way, Cornwall, Dales Way, James Herriot Way, and many more. Enjoy exploring the United Kingdom on a self guided walking holiday!

Walkers' Britain is committed to responsible travel and true sustainability. We take travellers to many countries which are home to challenging wilderness, rich biodiversity, and fragile environments. It is the travel choices we make while visiting these environments that reduce the negative impact. This is the essence of responsible and sustainable travel - something we take very seriously.

Hotels

Often family run, these charming hotels range from 2 to 4 stars and provide access to local living thanks to your hosts. The hospitality is generous and their local knowledge is invaluable. Where possible, we choose locations that add to your experience.

Bed & breakfasts (B&Bs)

Simple yet rich in local character, the B&Bs chosen are clean, comfortable and run by hosts that help add to your experience.

Guesthouses

Similar to bed & breakfasts, these family-owned accommodations are clean and comfortable. Rooms with en suites generally have a shower but no bath due to space. There may be a separate room with a bath tub.

Country inns

Enjoy the cosy country setting and convenience of staying in a comfortable place that is attached to a restaurant or pub, usually on the ground floor with the rooms above.
