Discover Britain’s Best Walks with Julia Bradbury and ViewRanger

Posted on 06/01/2017

Britain’s Best Walks, the brand new ITV series starting Friday 6th January, sees Julia Bradbury showcase our nation’s top landscape trails – guiding viewers to well-known, iconic walks, as well as those more surprising, hidden gems – and revealing our breath-taking diverse landscapes, with spectacular aerial photography that makes you want to get off the sofa to join her.

Using her expert knowledge and experience, each week Julia chooses her favourite walk from a distinct type of British landscape – ranging from islands, lakes, fells, countryside, coastal and riverside walks. As walking is the nation's most-loved outdoor activity – with a staggering 24 million of us heading to Britain’s hottest walking spots each year – Julia explores why we love walking and what we can discover from these very different landscapes.
