England’s Great Walking Trails

England’s Great Walking Trails

Experience the magnificent English countryside with our new range of walking trails, perfectly designed for lovers of the outdoors with an interest in walking and a passion for exploring!

 

We have put together 3 sample itineraries to give you an idea of what’s on offer and to demonstrate how easily these complete packages can be added into a bigger trip. With client’s comfort and safety in mind at all times, each route has been carefully created to offer a low level walk – with an option to make any walk more challenging on request.

These routes are designed to be taken at a leisurely pace; allowing you to enjoy the stunning scenery and dramatic landscapes along your walk, delving further into England’s rich historical past. For those who wish to enjoy a shorter walk; we can arrange for transfers to pick you up to lessen the walking distance – just let us know what pace and duration you want – we will do the rest!

 

Whilst each itinerary is perfectly suitable for individuals to navigate on their own; some clients may wish to avail of the service of a private walking guide to accompany them for the duration of the route; speak to your ASA consultant who will be happy to arrange this for you and offer that extra level of safety and security.

 

You can fully relax safe in the knowledge that everything will be organised for you (hotel accommodation, luggage transfers etc). You will be met by a friendly local host on your first night who will go through your welcome pack and route information with you and answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Inclusions for each route are detailed in each itinerary, as follows:

 

The largest surviving Roman monument in Europe, Hadrian’s Wall offers an impressive opportunity for walkers keen to explore a fascinating period in British history. This 5 day / 4 night itinerary begins in Carlisle; which is easily accessible from London via rail (or a short flight!) where your host will meet you upon check-in to your hotel and provide you with your welcome pack and go through your itinerary in detail with you. Each day you will be transferred to and from the start and end point of your hike, with your evenings free to enjoy at your leisure.

After the walking portion of  your itinerary is over; you will be ideally located in either Carlise or Newcastle where you may continue your journey exploring the North of England – our team will be more than happy to extend your itinerary here and ensure you experience more of this wonderful part of the country!

This suggested hike we have prepared for you is ideal for novice walkers, but can also be amended upon request to make it more challenging.
