Have you made any New Year’s resolutions? Or are you thinking about some potential staycations for 2019? We have definitely been getting excited about where to walk next. Here is a bucket list of amazing community-created walks to inspire you and help give you something else to look forward to in the year ahead.

1. Pegsdon Short Circular Route 1

Pegsdon, Central Bedfordshire
Great circular route that starts or finishes at the pub. Wander across fields and enjoy rolling countryside with some rather epic views from the top of the hill. You might meet some sheep along the way.

2. Coastal Walk from Dover to Deal

Dover, Kent
An epic 10 mile walk along the coast with cliff top views and picture perfect beaches. Every stop along this walk looks like you have jumped right into a postcard. Best of all, there is a nice cozy pub at the end where you can grab a pint and rest your tired legs.

3. Barbican to Mount Batten

Plymouth, Kent
Catch the ferry over to Mount Batten, enjoy the views across to the old citadel and then follow the walkway up to the waterfront path. Stroll along the pier, soak up the fresh air and enjoy the peace and tranquility.

4. St. Swithun’s Way Pt. 1

Winchester, Hampshire
This jaunt passes Winchester Cathedral and Winchester Museum before continuing into the countryside. Some sections are part of the famous Pilgrim’s Way from Winchester to Canterbury, marked by the sign of the shell.

5. Mile End Wild Walk

Bethnal Green, London
The kids are going to love this jaunt by our friends over at Hackney Wild Walks. It’s got a lovely mix of nature trails, green spaces, and playgrounds to keep the little ones entertained!

6. Nature and History in Richmond Park

Richmond, London
If you haven’t visited London’s largest royal park yet, it should definitely be on your list. With over 900 hectares of grassland and woodland to explore, it is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and unwind in nature for a while.

7. Pergolas, Views & Faded Grandeur

Hampstead, London
This jaunt will take you to all of the best bits of Hampstead Heath (hello Pergola’s!), and maybe help you discover some secret corners as well. The best time to visit is in spring and summer when the incredible rose and jasmine gardens are in full bloom.

8. Windmills of my Mind

Anslow, Staffordshire
A nice loop around Anslow in Staffordshire with countryside views, wind turbines, and big old growth oaks. If you are lucky you might catch a glimpse of some farm animals like horses, chickens, or maybe even a llama or two.

From winter through to spring, summer and autumn, these walks are great whatever the season so get out there and start feeling better already! Don't forget to check us out on TwitterInstagram and Facebook!
