As spring starts to settle into summer, it becomes the season of the great outdoors. Time to dust off those walking boots and get back out there.

But where exactly should we be rambling off to this summer? We’ve rounded up some the most picturesque walks from all over the UK, to help you make the most of your summer.

Lizard Peninsula

Lizard Peninsula

Lizard Peninsula is the most southerly point of mainland Britain, all the way down in Cornwall. Its name is actually not related to lizards at all, and derives from the old Cornish Lys Ardh, meaning ‘high court’.

The Lizard Peninsula is one of the most spectacular coastlines in the entire country and it comes complete with exotic subtropical plants and incredible beaches, all set back in coves.

Start in Kynance Cove and do a loop around the peninsula, making sure you visit the town of Lizard along the way.

Hadrian’s Wall Path

Hadrian’s Wall Path

Hadrian’s Wall Path is an English classic that combines walking and history. Hadrian’s Wall was, of course, the frontier wall built around 122AD to protect the Roman English settlers from the Scottish natives.

The path stretches 84 miles from Bowness-on-Solway, Cumbria in the west, all the way to Tyneside in the east.

Along the way, you’re sure see some of England’s most bracing and barren terrain, through the moorlands and rolling countryside.

West Highland Way

West Highland Way

One of the longest long-distance paths in the United Kingdom, the West Highland Way is a 95-mile path stretching from Milngavie, just outside Glasgow, all the way to the foot of Ben Nevis.

If you’re really committed, you can walk the entire 95 miles, which takes roughly a week, and it stretches through the awe-inspiring wilderness of the Scottish Highlands.

Along the way, make sure you take in the blissful desolation of Rannoch Moor, the drama of the Devil’s Staircase, and the history of Fort William.

Tramway Trail

Tramway Trail

The Tramway Trail is an 11-mile coast-to-coast walk that connects Portreath and Devoran, both in Cornwall.

This path follows the line of two early horse-drawn tramways that both copper and tin were once exported along out of Cornwall. Along the route there are interpretation boards that are fixed to granite stones, giving an insight into Cornwall’s mining past.

This walk is very popular with both ramblers and cyclists, and offers a beautiful look at Cornwall’s secluded glades, enchanting woodlands and dilapidated mines.

Seven Sisters

Seven Sisters

This is a classically British shoreline walk, as you follow the shore and walk along the chalk white cliffs. You can even follow the shoreline path all the way down to the shore.

Seven Sisters is so named after the seven hills that undulate along the shoreline between Cuckmere Haven and Birling Gap.

This walk is relatively easy, stretching for 13.8 miles along the coast. But be sure to pack a windbreaker, as the wind coming off the channel can be blustery.
