Where2walk presents the best walks in the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, the North York Moors and the best places to stay to fully appreciate them.

Each walk is FREE to use, to follow and download

There are over 500 individual walks on this website and they form the basis of the website.  There are also Long Distance Walks, Overseas Walks and Walking Challenges. Just look for them under the tab ‘Our Walks‘. As well as planning what I believe is the best route I have taken the photographs, designed the maps, written the description and even discovered the joys of plotting a GPS route! It has been a real labour of love.

To find out a little more about me look at this article in The Guardian

The walks form the basis for the website but we also offer the following services:

  • Book a Self Guided Walking Holiday
  • Map & Compass Courses (1 and 2 day)
  • Hire a Guide for the day
  • A Walkers Shop including maps, books and mugs.
