Walk with the 101 England campaign
A new campaign has been launched by Visit England, the country’s tourist board, to encourage people to “101 things”. The 101 Things to Do in England Before you go Abroad
project began in January by asking people to suggest their favourite things to do and see. From this list, a shortlist was drawn up and the 101 things include activities in a range of categories: Food and Drink, History and heritage, Arts and Culture, Wildlife and nature, Health and Fitness and Because It’s Awesome.
We love this idea – and we’re also delighted to see that several of our Macs Adventure holidays feature on the list.
At no. 86 is Walk the South West Coast Path
: This fabulous coastal walk is 660 miles in total so we offer shorter holidays along the section of the route. One that we love is from Minehead to Westward Ho!
. The walk of eight days also includes the highest coastline in Britain.
No 96 on the list is to Walk Coast to Coast:
Our Coast to Coast
trip follows a fabulous 191 miles of footpath from St Bees to Robin Hood’s Bay. Alfred Wainwright, famous for his pictorial guides to The Lakeland Fells, created a route from one English coast to the other and across three national parks to come up with the Coast to Coast route. The Coast to Coast gives the perfect snapshot of England and some of her most picturesque villages, lakes, mountains and moors.
At No.90 is Caving in the Yorkshire Dales:
If you fancy caving, why not also walk the wonderful Dales Way
in this beautiful part of England? From Ilkley to Bowness-on Windermere the six-day walking holiday reveals amazing geology and heads through two of the countries best National Parks.
No 99 is to Walk the Pennine Way:
The Pennine Way
from Edale to Kirk Yetholm can be walked in around 20 days. If you have the time, this would make a fantastic walking holiday. For those with les time to spare, there are a number of walking options, such as the firs third of the walk from Edale through the wild, open moorlands of the Peak District and Bronte country to Horton-in-Ribblesdale in the Yorkshire Dales.
If you could choose one thing or walk to do in England what would it be?
