NATIONAL TRUST landscapes are popular with BRITAIN magazine: the Trust looks after 710 miles of coastline and more than 250,000 hectares of open countryside. Why not explore these gems of Britain’s scenery on a walk, whether an hour or two’s stroll or a day-long trip. There are some 150 walks all over England, Wales and Northern Ireland, which you can download from the National Trust’s website for free to take with you. There are themed walks to choose from, from walks for butterfly lovers to island adventures. Dark Skies, the latest series of walks, gives you the chance to do some star gazing, information including moon and constellation charts, a podcast and a photo gallery.

In the autumn, there’ll be Nature’s Harvest Walks, which take you to some of the Trust’s best berry and nut foraging locations. For more inspiration, the newly published National Trust Book of the Countryside also has a series of routes accompanying its chapters on the most stunning areas of National Trust countryside, from the isolated tors of Dartmoor to the dramatic scenery of the Peak District.
