The white cliffs of Dover have been featured in a list of the UK’s favourite walks.
The beauty spot was ranked number nine in the list of 15, beaten by the likes of Scafell Pike in Cumbria, Hadrian’s Wall between Tyne and Wear, Northumberland, Cumbria, and Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
The list of Britain’s best loved walks was compiled independently by One Poll and coach firm National Express is publicising the findings with the aim of getting people out enjoying the walks.
National Express Managing Director Chris Hardy said: “Summer is here and there can scarcely be a better way to make the most of it for free by getting out and exploring the great outdoors.
“From the drama of England’s highest mountain to the buzz of city streets and the quiet beauty of the countryside there’s something for everyone on our list, regardless of whether you’re feeling adventurous enough to tackle an entire route or want to enjoy a small section. Our countdown is a stunning showcase of the very best Britain has to offer and we hope it inspires people to put their best foot forward this summer”.
The best walk was chosen to be The South West Coast Path, covering Somerset, Devon, Cornwall and Dorset, second was Windermere Way in The Lake District, Cumbria, and third was The Great Glen Way in the Scottish Highlands.
The list of Britain’s best loved walks is available to view in full on the coach operator’s website www.nationalexpress.com.
