What do you want to do?


Britain is full of great places to explore.

You can walk the streets and alleys of Britain's historic towns and cities, ramble in the countryside, woodlands and forests or climb the hills and mountains in some remote but stunningly beautiful areas.


But the dictionary offers two definitions of exploring; travelling through an unfamiliar area to learn about it or to examine something in great detail. That means moving the stones in a rock pool to see the marine life, looking in hidden corners of a garden or turning the pages of a reference book all count as exploring too.

No matter what type of weather the Great British summer throws at us, the possibilities for exploring are endless.  Take a look at the ideas we have to help you discover something new close to home or further afield.
