Best Of Britain: Walks
Posted on June 28, 2014 by Admin
Here at Great Little Breaks, we love what the UK has to offer. Whether its walks, exciting attractions, historic monuments, or popular cities, we want to highlight the 'Best of Britain'! For the next few days will be sharing with you what we think is the best of Britain.
The UK provides some inspiring, stunning, and simply wonderful walks. From areas such as the Peak District, to the coastal trails or North Devon, you have a lot to benefit from a leisurely stroll.
The Brecon Beacons National Park:
Covering a wide area in South Wales, the Brecon Beacons is a beautiful part of the country full of stunning country scenery, woodland areas, streams, and waterfalls. The diversity of terrain provides a varied range of landscapes, ideal for both experienced hikers, and less experienced walkers. There are several trails through the Brecon Beacons National Park, and certainly a lot to take in, so this area of Britain definitely makes it onto our list!
The Peak District:
Within an easy distance from areas such as Manchester, Sheffield, and the Midlands, there's no excuse to not visit this area of natural beauty. The varied dark and light peaks, low valleys and high moors make this area unique, and this National Park offers a wide range of scenery and routes to be explored. There is something for everyone in the Peak District National Park- individuals, families, or large groups- no wonder it's called the walking country!
White Cliffs of Dover:
Offering breathtaking views, as well as great walking spot, the White Cliffs of Dover allow views over the stunning landscape of South East England. The chalk cliffs look out over the English Channel, and have a place in our national history as they were used for defence in both World Wars. Discover the spectacular coastline dotted with wild flowers, and various different kinds of wildlife. This walking area definitely makes it on to our 'Best of Britain'.
The Snowdonia National Park contains much more than the highest mountain in Wales, but it also encompasses a large area of stunning scenery, wildlife, and challenging mountain routes. This complex area of mountains in northern Wales is a great area for high level walks with plenty of choice in terrain, and provides a great experience for more experienced walkers. If you're up for a challenge (and are not one for cheating on the mountain railway) then this beautiful area is certainly the place to go.
