Walking in Lancashire

Lancashire has some of the best walking country in England, from short, gentle rambles to long distance treks allowing you to enjoy some of the best views and vistas the county has to offer. You can download a whole range of walks from the sections below that allow you to explore the county.

From walks inspired by Pendle Witches and renowned authors, heritage trails and industrial landmarks to walks themed around some of Lancashire’s most famous foods.

Come and explore Lancashire’s countryside, canals, rivers, woodlands, coast and towns. Enjoy quiet lanes and rare wildlife. From the flat plains in the west through to the peaks and troughs of the West Pennine Moors and the Forest of Bowland AONB. There are seven long distance walking routes including the 137 mile footpath following the whole coastline.

Make the most of your walk and bring your faithful pooch along as well. Then treat yourself to a well-earned pint in one of the many dog friendly pubs!

Win a pair of walking boots and custom made insoles for you and a friend courtesy of outdoor clothing and footwear specialist; Whalley Warm & Dry. Enter now.
