It may not always feel like it, but winter is an excellent time to go out walking and explore the natural world. An early start to the day in winter will reward you with the mist rising from the lakes, valleys, and forests, and you’ll feel the benefits of soaking up the mild sunshine during the shorter days too. The UK is blessed with a wide range of walks for you to explore during winter, whether you’re looking for winter hikes to get your blood pumping or some more tranquil walks where you can slow down and truly appreciate the scenery.
The National Trust have rounded up the best winter walks in the UK to inspire you to get out and appreciate your local area, even when its cold outside. In England and Northern Ireland, the gardens, parks and countryside remain open for people to exercise, but urge everyone to book their visits in advance and stay local.
