The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Kathmandu Kensington

168-170 Kensington High St, Kensington, London W8 7RG, UK – 020 7937 9842

This Kathmandu is especially good for luggage and travel storage products (see the basement floor). Their range is great if you're going on a trip and need options to allow you to travel compactly. Their luggage and bag options are well designed compared to their competitors, and are reasonably priced.

Very welcoming and helpful staff who knew what they were talking about. Unluckily there is not that big variety of items, but we managed to find all that we needed.

Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports

178 Kensington High St, Kensington, London W8 7RG, UK – 020 7937 6889

I like EB shops esp the bigger ones like Covent Garden but if you are shopping for mountain/ski gear you have to understand that they only stock high end. A couple of years ago an alpine shell was £250 ish now you're looking at £450 plus. A ski jacket for £200 was decent and a top brand £350. Now they are selling Kjus jackets at approx £1400.

Great store. I believe the biggest range within UK

Snow+Rock

188 Kensington High St, Kensington, London W8 7RG, UK – 020 7937 0872

Nice people's is there. Honest and helping persons. They have good parking space. Quality of products is very good. Everyday many customers is comes here for shopping. All staff are good and very good customer services. They have many branches in this country. Store is works as a good landmark also.

The selection is good and prices are reasonable when on sale with knowledgeable and super helpful staff (ski section at least). Only issue is it can be understaffed so service while you have it is great but can take a while to get.

WalkingWorld.jpg
Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!
