The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Mountain Warehouse Alton

58 High St, Alton GU34 1ET, UK – 01420 544402

Sold out of the sale goods i wanted but c'est ia vie!

Some good bargains to be had, hard to reach items up high

16 High St, Alton GU34 1BN, UK – 01420 82990

Always very helpful and amazing what yo can find in thus 'Aladdins Cave'

Very helpful & ftiendly. Will be going there again tomorrow hopefully to get some kids aqua shoes if possible.

The Original Factory Shop

77 High St, Alton GU34 1LG, UK – 01420 84811

Got a bargain and the staff were extremely helpful.

Great place to shop. Top brands at knock down prices. The one thing I would say is that buy it when you see it as they might have it one week but then it is gone and they might not ever have to again. They also have loyalty scheme.

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!
