The festive season is the perfect time to walk across crisp fields and explore frosty cities.
Discovering Britain’s geographically-themed walks, trails and viewpoints explore the country’s diverse landscapes and to whet your appetite, here’s a small selection of the many new activities that have been added this year:
Monks, Millers and Marbelers – a six mile walk along the River Tees to find out how this peaceful river was once a haven of industry described by Daniel Defoe as ‘the terrible Tees’.
Spitting Distance – a short two mile trail around the wild and rugged Studland Peninsula in Dorset to find out why it’s so different to its glitzy neighbour Sandbanks, the ‘millionaire’s mile’.
Spirit World and In a Lonely Place – two viewpoints chosen by nature writers Mark Cocker and Patrick Barkham, exploring what these remote parts of Britain mean to them.
There are over 200 activities to try. Each one is self-guided and free to download. You can also follow Discovering Britain on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with new activities and tell the team what you think.
