Discover our top finds

Walking around the UK has become increasingly popular especially over the last couple of years, with people digging their walking boots out to get into the fresh air for some exercise.

At many of our parks we have some of the best walking routes nearby for you and the family if you want to see the very best of the UK and there’s nothing better after a long hike than rewarding yourself with a cold pint and a bite to eat. With this in mind, we analysed the Google Reviews of pubs along the routes of Britain’s favourite walks

Robin Hood's Bay

Whitby to Robin Hood's Bay

The stunning scenic coastal hike from Whitby to Robin Hood’s Bay took top spot, based on both the quality and quantity of refreshment options, and we can't say we're surprised!
Malham Cove

Malham Cove to Gordale Scar

North Yorkshire really did take the crown with several walking routes making it into the top results. Malham Cove to Gordale Scar is a stunning circular route taking in all the natural wonders the area has to offer.

Ingleborough and Gaping Gill

Another walk easily accessible from all our Yorkshire parks, and this one includes the second-highest mountain in the Yorkshire Dales. Ingleborough is frequently climbed as part of the Three-Peaks walk.
St Ives

St. Ives to Zennor

A popular circular walk with wonderful coastal scenery with dramatic cliffs, beautiful beaches and delightful coves. Be sure to visit The Tinner Arms which was built in 1271, meaning the pub has been at the heart of Zenner for over 700 years.
Lizard Point

Lizard Peninsula

Take in dramatic views of the Atlantic, visit the lighthouse and look out for local wildlife on this enjoyable walk around the most southerly point in Britain
Roseberry Topping

Roseberry Topping

A walk perfect for families up the iconic hill with stunning views across North Yorkshire and Cleveland. Enjoy a visit to the Quarry Stone pub afterwards for a drink and bite to eat to refuel.
