The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Cotswold Outdoor London - Covent Garden

8 Southampton St, London WC2E 7HA, UK – 020 7379 3060

Great selection and friendly staff Very competitive prices. I buy my hiking gear here quiet often, and I always had a great time. Last time I bought some boots and the employee (on a Saturday afternoon) helped me choosing despite being very busy. I suggest having a membership here. Great place if you have a BA American express as they usually have avios offers here.

I can’t say anything bad about this shop. Sebastian gave me really good advices on what gore tex jacket to choose for my South America travels. I love when shops are employing people who know a lot about their job. And Cotswold outdoor are one of those.

Cotswold Outdoor London - Holborn

311-318 High Holborn, London WC1V 7BN, UK – 020 7831 9957

Knowledgeable staff dealt quickly with my requirements. Incredibly well stocked store. One stop shop for all your sports needs.

Near to Holborn station and has a great selection of gear. Unlike other Cotsworld Outdoor stores this is not as busy so you can take your time finding the items you want. The women section is on the lower floor. This is my favourite of all the Cotsworld Outdoor stores that I have visited. If you have any questions ask to speak to Zee as he knows his stuff.

Cotswold Outdoor London - Piccadilly

23/26 Piccadilly, Mayfair, London W1J 0DJ, UK – 020 7437 7399

Nice helpful staff; decent range of items, probably not as much as the covent garden one but still good.

Well laid out, good choice, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Nice central location makes it easily accessed by public transport.

WalkingWorld.jpg
Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!
