Top Walking Tours Trends in England and the UK - Ramblers Walking Tours

Leading walking tour company Ramblers shares their insights on walking tour trends in England, Scotland and Wales. Check out these top luxury vacation trends for walking tours in the UK.

The Uber-Green exercise: walking! Celebrities from actress Brooke Shields, to former astronaut John Glenn, and singer Art Garfunkel walk for exercise. Apart from the health and environmental benefits, walking tours bring travelers close up to nature and the locals, and offer the most in-depth way of experiencing a destination.

Mysterious Scottish Isles for history buffs. Scotland‘s Hebrides are one of the most mysterious places to explore on walking tours to Scotland, and a trip to the Isles of Skye, Lewis, and Harris feels like time travel, with some of the finest prehistoric sites in the UK, peaceful and serene sandy beaches, and miles and miles of walking paths through unspoilt nature.

Extend your royal wedding tour with a trip to the English countryside. For those travelling to London for the royal wedding in April, why not extend the trip to the English countryside, whether it’s the Cotswolds or Lake District, to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and experience the “real England.”

Couples that walk together, talk together. With their hectic day-to-day schedule, the slow pace of walking allows for couples to rekindle their connection and experience stunning countryside vistas together with plenty of opportunities to talk, share memories, and just be together on a romantic holiday.

Jane Austen fans unite and wander through her history. Fans of the literature legend will love Rambler’s new self-guided walking tour through the beautiful Hampshire countryside that was the inspiration for the works of the author, whose house can be visited on the tour.

Retrace Shakespeare’s steps on a walk from Stratford to London. Following a route that the great poet and playwright may have taken when he left his birthplace for London in the 16th century, this self-guided walk passes through such picturesque places as Oxford and Kew, before finishing at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.

Walkers cherish their creature comforts. After exercising and enjoying the outdoors during the day, many walkers seek comfort and luxury at night. Ramblers offers a variety of hand-picked, charming and gloriously cozy Inns and B&Bs like Dumbleton Hall Hotel in the Cotswolds, a 19th century manor.

Women get active and walk together. Once the kids are grown up, many empty nesters want to get active and social, and what better way to have some “girl time” than walking and talking. Ramblers has seen a steady increase in women travelling together, be it friends or relatives such as mother and daughter.

The Evergreen: family reunions and intergenerational travel. Whether it’s a family reunion of four or fourteen, walking tours to England, Scotland or Wales, such as a luxury private tour of the Lake District, provide a great opportunity to spend some quality time together.

Self-guided tours for more spontaneity. New for 2011, Ramblers is introducing a variety of self-guided tours, offering independent travelers the chance to walk at their own pace yet still have all of the logistics, like accommodations, meals, luggage transfers, trail maps, trail notes and local emergency contact, taken care of.
