Description

Cathedrals are an intrinsic part of the history of many UK cities. The sheer scale and elaborate design of these buildings demonstrates the status once held by the church and the efforts that were made in dedicating buildings to faith. Whatever your faith (or none), today they remain glorious landmarks within the cities demonstrating the skills of stonemasons past and present. Here we present nine of the best walks in England that allow you to visit some of the best-loved cathedrals.

A little noisy with the constant gunfire from the military training ground. Otherwise some nice moments.

Start and end are okay but too much of this route is along pretty boring roads - lots of missed opportunities to take more interesting footpaths.

Winchester is a beautiful place to walk about. The people are polite and respectful, dogs are on leads and there is no dog poo for my kids to step in! The wooden steps get your heart going and there is a good view from the top of St Catherine's Hill.

Lovely little walk through the city. perfect mix of urban, historical buildings and greenery. Very busy for the most part so it's not the quietest, peaceful walk but the history of the city makes up for it. Great way to quickly look around York if you're in the area.

Great walk around Winchester and St Catherine's Hill. We started from a free car park on Garnier Road at foot of the hill. This allows you to tackle the hill while you still have energy. The route in and out of Winchester should be adjusted so you can see history in this city. We took in the The Kings Gate, Peninsula Square, The Great Hall, West Gate, High Street, King Alfred and the Cathedral. There are a lot more options.

Short walk along the city walls of Chester with good info at the gates re the history. A good deal of work is being carried out on the city walls and therefore a number of diversions in place. Nonetheless if you have 40mins to kill, well worth it.

This is an update of the current situation of a walk around the walls. walls leading to Eastgate Bridge, Northgate Bridge and Southgate Bridge are both under construction at present (updated 5/6/20 - see images), hence my diversion. A lovely walk around the 2 mile circuit around part of the walls of Chester with lots to see and do. Please note: There are only small sections of the walls that do have ramps for people with disability.

Great trail but had to deviate as flooded. Fab views and great with a dog as mostly off leash (which our mut loved)
