2 Day National Park Walks

The UK's National Parks are treasures of unspoiled beauty and variety, too vast to discover in just one day. These two-day walks from our friends at the National Trust encompass two full days of ambitious walking, or can easily be split over more days for a less strenuous challenge.

Exmoor

512889512

This 24-mile figure of eight hike on the Holnicote Estate, within Exmoor National Park, starts with an 8-mile jaunt north of Allerford, taking in Selworthy Beacon, where you’ll be rewarded with views right across the Bristol Channel to South Wales. On the second day, it’s 16 miles, again from Allerford, but this time heading south through one of the UK’s largest ancient oak woodlands, Horner Wood, before heading to Dunkery Beacon, the highest point on Exmoor.

Peak District

490989727

The High Peak is a great introduction to the northern uplands of England; it’s where the Pennine Way begins, and where a mountain chain that forms the backbone of England makes its way north into Scotland. This two-day walk takes you away from the crowds and explores the land around the edges of the moorland of Kinder Scout and the dramatic geological fault line that lies just to the south. It really is a place where nature thrives, home to a variety of wildlife, including ravens, red grouse and peregrine falcons.

South Downs

1168744456

This two-day walk along the South Downs National Trail captures much of the spirit of Britain’s 15th and newest National Park, taking in sheep-grazed rolling chalk downlands and serenely secluded valleys along the way. Beginning at Steyning, just north of the town of Shoreham-by-Sea, it meanders eastwards via the South Downs escarpment, high above both Brighton and a succession of quintessentially English villages, the occasional pub to the hamlet of Southease and its train station.
