In England the most popular locations for walking and hill walking include the Lake District, the Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales.
There are over 100 great walks in the Lake District, including ascents of Scafell Pike, Helvellyn and Coniston. If there’s one mountain everyone wants to climb, it is Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain. Most keen walkers will be able to get to the top, but it’s a long climb. From the top of the mountain, there are spectacular views across the valley of Wasdale.
In the Yorkshire Dales, experienced walkers and climbers could try the Three Peaks Yorkshire Dales challenge. The walk is approximately 23 miles in length and takes you on a superb circular of the hills.
The Peak District has a huge choice of walks ranging from high moorland treks to gentle riverside walks.
