In 1965 as the first National Trail in the country was opened – ‘a Pennine Way from the Peak to the Cheviots’. There are now 19 fully waymarked and state-maintained trails spanning the length and breadth of Britain from Land’s End to Inverness.

Together, the National Trails cover well over 5000 kilometres (3100 miles), exploring the rich, scenic, historic countryside of Britain. Some trails are short and easy, while others are long and challenging. Some have a strong theme, following rugged coastlines or meandering rivers. Others use ancient cross-country routes or follow the courses of ancient boundaries.

This inspirational guidebook looks at each of the National Trails in turn, through England, Wales and Scotland, unravelling their themes to discover what makes each of them so special and providing the practical information to help you plan your route.

  • Outline schedules for each Trail allow you compare the routes and organise your own walking itinerary.
  • Basic day-by-day route descriptions for each Trail are illustrated with maps and profiles.
  • For each Trail information is provided on access to and from the route, maps, public transport, guidebooks, TICs, accommodation and useful websites.

Packed with information, this guide will help you get out and walk the finest long-distance routes in the country.
