This is the first walk I’ve done on iFootpath and I loved it. Beautiful walk, easy to follow instructions. Living overseas, the English countryside very special!

iFootpath Walk comment by zoeaus

My wife and I live in New Hampshire, in the U.S., but we did live in England for 5 years a long time ago. At that time we wore out the Book of Country Walks, which was a delightful way to see England and Scotland.

We are back in the U.S. but our son, daughter-in-law and grandson (8) live in Surbiton in southwest London, and we visit them once or twice a year. I’ve been using your iFootpath on the last two trips, to go to Chessington and Godalming, introducing my grandson to walking the footpaths. It has been a great experience and the directions have been complete and easy to follow. There is no “oh, they didn’t mention this fork in the path” moment in these walks.

Your newest feature, Car Free Walks, will be a big plus for us because our family in London doesn’t have or need a car and we don’t really want to hire one when we are there. Both Chessington and Godalming were rail accessible, and I’m delighted that I will now be able to use a Search feature to find walks we can get reach by rail. My guess is that this feature will be of much benefit to a lot of Londoners who are starved for the country walk experience but have no way to get there.

Congratulations on the Travel App usage ratings; it shows that the work you do is appreciated widely. Keep up the good work, and help keep up the great British tradition of public footpaths.

Six of the Best: Walks with Chalk Hill Figures

If you’ve never had chance to visit a chalk hill figure, then you are missing out on this enchanting phenomenon which is seen especially in England.

Here we present six iFootpath walks that allow you to discover some of these chalk hillside emblems…

Nine of the Best: Cathedral Walks

Cathedrals are an intrinsic part of the history of many of our cities.

Whatever your faith (or none), today they remain glorious landmarks within our 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 our best-loved cathedrals…

Discover England’s Great Literary Walks

Some of the greatest writers were inspired by the natural landscapes around them. It’s no surprise to me; we all feel our emotions awakened as we explore the great outdoors and our hearts are stirred. I guess the difference is that, whilst some of us are left speechless by the beauty revealed to us, the literary greats find their voices…
