Winter doesn’t need to be all doom and gloom. The UK comes alive in a very different way during the colder months: we’re talking icy grass, frost-tipped trees and vast frozen lakes. Even though the unpredictable weather might tempt you to curl up on the sofa with a takeaway to re-watch episodes of Friends all day, we can guarantee that getting out there to make the most of the natural world will feel a hell of a lot better.
From the eerie landscapes of the Peak District to wild beach walks in Kent and the forests of the Scottish Highlands, the UK brims with stunning wintry walks. Wrap up warm (we’re talking gloves, hat, scarf and thermals) and get ready to indulge in the best scenery around. If you want to make a trip out of it, why not stay in a cosy log cabin for ultimate comfort or even treat yourself to a night’s sleep in a majestic castle? Oh, and if you need extra motivation, we find that coming home to a toasty hot chocolate usually does the trick. Don’t know where to start? We’ve done the hard work for you: here are the best winter walks in the UK.
