Walking Across Europe is superb so get on your walking boots to see the region at its very best and really get away from it all.
If you are thinking about a walking holiday to the UK then one of the suggested walks in particular would be the Salisbury to Winchester Clarendon Way walk. This walking holiday in the UK operates year round, giving the walking holiday goer the chance to see this part of England in all its glory in each of the four seasons, and in either direction. It can also be combined with the Avon Valley Path and/or the South Downs Way to make a longer walk; if you feel that the modest total distance of 24 miles for this 3 day walk is too much of a beginner’s level.
On your way you will see England’s famous 12th century and historic buildings as well as medieval deer parks. The scenery in some areas is stunning and quite undiscovered. As your path crosses into Hampshire, the rolling countryside is alive with wildlife. Your fourth day on this holiday could either be spent travelling home after breakfast or spent exploring the city. See what Winchester has to offer; including the fine Cathedral, the Great Hall and Queen Eleanor’s Garden, Winchester College, Winchester City Mill, The Gurkha Museum, and The Military Museums.
