With over 19,000 pages of free walking information, "Walking Britain" is dedicated to the footpaths that cross the landscape. The National Parks feature strongly in the lists of walks including the Lake District, the Peak District and Snowdonia, not to mention the Yorkshire Dales. Coverage also includes Counties and many areas of natural beauty (AONBs).

Although the natural world is the theme, man-made elements such as villages, bridges, mines and churches are also included in the many walking routes.
