Walk the National Trails in England

England hosts 14 of the National Trails of England & Wales. They criss-cross the counties, preserving and showcasing the most spectacular natural areas, and allowing people access to walk and cycle through them. Each trail is managed to ensure the paths are well maintained, the waymarking is flawless and there are amenities available for long-distance walking. 

The trails pass through some of the most spectacular areas in the UK. There are rugged coastal walks on the South West Coast Path, and Cleveland Way, trails full of history like Hadrian's Wall Path and The Ridgeway, and classic trails such as the Pennine Way and Cotswold Way

Macs Adventure have been running tours on the National Trails since our very early days.  You can depend on us to provide hand-picked accommodation, local knowledge and a memorable and lasting experience, and we have a close and personal relationship with the accommodations. On all of our National Trails, you can choose from a variety of itineraries and explore over as many days as you feel comfortable. You can also break them up and perhaps start with doing just a section of the trail to return later and do the other part - especially recommended for the huge 630 mile long South West Coast Path!

Choose your National Trail

  • South West Coast Path

    The South West Path stretches around the south-west peninsula of England, exposing dramatic coastal scenery as the walk unfolds. The route is split into several delightful sections as walking the entire route at once would be rather time-consuming. This video gives you an overview of the route and how best to tackle it.

  • Cotswold Way

    The Cotswold Way is a waymarked National Trail in the south of England. It takes you through the green rolling hills of the Cotswolds, through honey-coloured villages with thatched roofs and olde-worlde charm, finishing up in the Roman City of Bath.

  • Hadrian's Wall Path

    Hadrian's Wall Path follows the route of the UNESCO world heritage wall, built to keep the barbaric Scots out of Roman territory. This outstanding historical site is punctuated with milecastles, museums and recreations, not to mention some of the best walking in England.
