Britain's landscapes are wonderful. From the mountains and glens of the Scottish Highlands to the rolling downland of Southern England; from Cornwall’s jagged coast to the flat fenlands of East Anglia. Every landscape has a story to tell about our past and present.
Discovering Britain is an exciting series of geographically-themed walks created by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) that aim to bring these stories alive and inspire everyone to explore and learn more about Britain. Discovering Britain walks engage the brain as well as the feet. They tell stories about the landscape and inspire you to explore why Britain is as it is today. You will discover how our amazing towns, cities, countryside and coast have been shaped by people, historic events, the economy, the forces of nature and much more.
The walks are designed to be fun, informative and inspiring. They are completely free, self-guided and suitable for all ages and abilities. Prepare to discover something new and to be surprised by what is right on your own doorstep.
Our ambition is to create more than 100 inspirational and informative walks that bring our islands’ geography and history alive. We are creating new walks and adding to the website all the time.
