Walking guidebooks

Guidebooks have been around in some shape or form since antiquity, when peripluses were used by captains to see listed ports and coastal landmarks, with approximate distances between them.

Since then a whole wealth of guidebooks focusing on walking, mountaineering, hill walking and scrambling have appeared. In the UK, the W. A. Pouchers Guides are probably some of the most famous, and although they were written between the 40’s and 60’s, they can still be found in bookstores and online.

In addition to the guide books offered by the Lonely Planet or Rough Guides the following list of publishers offer a good selection of guidebooks for walking both in the UK and aboard:
  • Francis Lincoln publishes the Pouchers Guides 
  • Cicerone publish a wide selection of walking, mountaineering and trekking both in the UK and internationally
  • Crimson Publishing produces the Pathfinder guidebooks
  • The Inn Way is a series of guidebooks on long-distance walks and country pubs
