Walking Holidays on The Ridgeway
Set off on the Ridgeway, 'Britain's oldest road', in the rolling countryside of Southern England, just a short journey away from London. Originally a trade route, these paths were frequented by farmers, soldiers and traders as long as 5000 years ago. Follow uncrowded paths, tranquil forests and visit distinctive historic sites.
This walk crosses two distinct landscapes that have been designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Unwind in the open and remote landscape of The North Wessex Downs (AONB) as you walk through quiet woodland. Visit quaint villages with thatched cottages and spot wildlife in the chalk grassland of The Chilterns (AONB). This region is home to some of the filming locations of Downton Abbey. Meet the locals in one of the traditional English pubs where a refreshing beverage awaits.
