Walking routes

Walking in the great outdoors can make you feel better both physically and mentally. Our 2,000 miles of canal towpaths provide largely flat, traffic-free walking routes, taking you from the inner city right into the heart of the countryside. Take a waterside walk and feel the difference.

Wellbeing on your doorstep

Take a look at our selection of walking routes on the map below. Alternatively you can find your nearest canal, place to visit and lots more on our Local to You page.

A number of these walks have been supplied by our trusted partner organisations such as the Royal Geographical Society and iFootpath
