Personal Experiences

We've been walking and cycling the planet for over four decades and are passionate about delivering exceptional service. Combined, we’ve travelled to virtually every corner of Europe, and are eager to share the many benefits of travelling on foot.

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.

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.


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.

Breakfast is included on our walks and will consist of either a cooked or continental affair. Surrounded by water the British Isles are perfect for seafood.  Enjoy a 'fish n chips' sitting on a jetty or dine in one of the many local restaurants to enjoy traditional fare.  Jersey is famed for their Royal potatoes and mussels along with the Jersey Wonders, a tasty snack similar to doughnuts.  On Guernsey try gache, a sweet bread packed with fruit or an Ormer casserole. The Isle of Man will give you delights such as 'Spuds and Herrin' or lamb and the Isle of Wight is traditionally known for its cream teas and crab but you may also be tempted by a Gallybagger cheese souffle.
