Hiking & Camping
Want to get away from the city life, there are plenty of camping sites and hiking tracks through national parks and country side.
Travel rides and pack trips are available to book. Great opportunity to get out in the country side.
There are 14 national parks and numerous other protected natural areas in England and Wales. Although nearly all land (including land in national parks) in the UK is privately owned, walkers have access to it along rights of way that are marked on maps and usually signposted. There are also areas where it is permissible to go beyond the rights of way, and these are known as ‘open country’.
