Walk England online has an enormous amount of information about walking the length and breadth of the British Isles.

If you live in a UK city, Walk It online has an interactive walk planner to help you search for and find the best walking route close to where you live. Each suggested route includes the journey time, calorie burn, step count and carbon saving.

You can also track your walking, plan walks, set personal goals and save your favourite routes with the free My Get Walking online tool.

For wheelchair users (and grandparents with buggies) wanting to find routes that are suitable for you, visit Walks with Wheelchairs.

The UK Ramblers’ Get Walking Keep Walking site (also organises city walks for inactive people and those with health problems).

Walking in a group is also a great way to start walking, make new friends and stay motivated. Walking for Health’s Walk Finder allows you to search for organised walks near to where you live.
