Explore – discover our United Kingdom tours
If you thought you knew the UK, you might just need to think again. Join one of our small group tours in the United Kingdom and discover an unparalleled history in its ancient castles, majestic palaces and inspiring gardens. Explore on foot along dramatic coastal paths and National Park trails, and through Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty on a walking trip, or take to two wheels to traverse the country coast-to-coast, taking in sites along Hadrian's Wall.
The tours have been designed so you can make the most of the days – coming back to the same base each night or moving just once, depending on the trip. The locations are all easily accessible by train or car. Our experienced tour leaders will show you all of the well-known sites, as well as the hidden gems you wouldn’t expect.

Discover our United Kingdom Walking Holidays
Travelling to your favourite international walking destination may be challenging at the moment, but there's plenty to discover and explore right here in the UK, on home turf. Open your eyes to the sheer beauty of our mountain peaks and the rich history of our timeworn castles. Follow paths less-travelled as you uncover Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland or challenge yourself to trek to the summit of Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. Join a walking holiday in the South Downs to immerse yourself in the quintessential English countryside or visit beautiful Wainwright country in the Lake District.
Our UK Walking holidays are centre-based meaning you'll stay at one or, at most, two hotels during the trip. You'll return each night to the same comfortable room, allowing you to make the most of your time away, and each destination is easy to get to by car or by train.
