Discovering Britain

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.

Discovering Britain is a series of geographically-themed activities that explore our diverse landscapes. These walks, trails and viewpoints engage the brain as well as the feet and aims to inspire everyone to find out more about Britain.

Explore the stories behind our towns, cities, countryside and coast.  Discover how they came to be, how they are changing and the challenges they face for the future. 

Self-guided walks

All the walks, trails and viewpoints are completely free and self-guided. Each one is richly illustrated, featuring complete directions and fully-functioning Ordnance Survey maps.

Whether you have a spare 15 minutes or are planning a day out, there is something for everyone to enjoy. New activities are added all the time, so visit Discovering Britain to get started.
