“Walking is one of Britain’s best loved pastimes. Every month, up to nine million folk pull on their boots and head to the great outdoors.” – Julia Bradbury
We worked alongside Ordnance Survey and the National Trust to help ITV find Britain’s best walks. Hundreds of people took part in the survey back in the autumn and voted for their favourite walk – and the top 100 were revealed in an exciting countdown on ITV on 30 January 2018.
Feeling inspired to head out into the great outdoors for your own walking adventure? Below you'll be able to find many of the routes that featured on ITV's Britain's Favourite Walks: Top 100, ready for you to view, download and walk.
