Take part in the Great British Walk

Use your feet to show your love of the great British countryside this autumn – and take part in the Great British Walk. For a second year running, our walking festival will celebrate the wealth of ‘great’ walks on offer at beautiful outdoor places up and down the country.

Having kicked off on 1 September, there will be a whole host of events, activities and trails to discover at our places all the way through to the end of half term.

If you’re a family looking to enjoy all that autumn has to offer, why not join us for a fun autumnal event? Let us put an adventurous spin on your day out by ticking of some more of our 50 things to do before you’re 11 3/4 at family friendly walking events including wildlife tracking, den building, night-time bat walks and even conker contests.

If a guided ramble is more your cup of tea, there’ll be plenty of ranger-led walks on offer, from autumn colour strolls in wooded parkland to wildlife spotting along dramatic coastline, there is a theme and distance to suit you.

Find out more about the Trust's walking festival on the Gone for a Walk site.

Here at Blakeney, there will be a selection of guided walks. There are still 5 spaces left on our Autumn Migrants walk at Blakeney this Friday. Information and tickets available here.

As part of the Great British Walk, we are encouraging people to upload pictures of their feet walking at NT properties onto the East of England Flickr site. Above are some of the Norfolk Coast team's feet on the compass at Scolt Head Island, Brancaster (owned by the National Trust, managed by Natural England) on a recent site visit.

What is your favourite walk on the Norfolk Coast? Here is Victoria's:
