Welcome to Walkingworld

Join and download your first walk free!

On Walkingworld you can find over 7000 routes, contributed by more than 500 walk authors. This huge library of carefully prepared guides means you can find a selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the country. The walks come in a unique format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper OS 1:25,000 Explorer map. View a typical example (PDF)

An annual subscription of £18 gives you unlimited access to all these walks. You can print them out, make the guides into PDFs, download digital mapping files for your GPS and follow the routes on the Walkingworld app. Join now without obligation and you can choose one walk from the entire library before deciding whether you want to subscribe. Just find the walk you want and click to add it to your personal library.

As a subscriber you can download walks direct to your mobile phone or tablet using the Walkingworld app. With this app you can follow the walk, complete with instructions and pictures, and see your position on an OS map.

Other subscriber benefits include a generous discount at Cotswold Outdoor and Snow+Rock.

If you join but decide not to subscribe you can use the site to get ideas for walks, receive our informative monthly newsletter and use the Walkingworld app in a more limited way. As a non-subscriber you can buy individual walks for £1.95 using your credit card or PayPal. There are also some free sample walks which are available on top of your chosen free walk.

Walks abroad

Most of the walks are in Britain but there's a growing collection in Spain and France, perfect destinations for a quick getaway. We are also building a collection of walks from cruise ports, including in Norway. Click the country in the menu on the left to browse our overseas walks.
 

New walks

At Walkingworld we are constantly working to keep the walks up to date, dealing with any changes and corrections immediately. New walks are also being added every month. If you ever need help on using the site or advice on any aspect of walking, just get in touch using the Contact link in the menu above.
 

Directory entry

As a subscriber you can set up a directory entry at no extra cost. The directory is a great way to promote a guest house, website or walking group to fellow Walkingworld members. A link to your directory entry appears on every local walk.
