Coastal walks 'best in winter'
Bookmark and Share
Some of Britain's best winter walks are to be found around the coast, according to the Ramblers.

Spokeswoman for the walking charity Maria Castellina nominated the landscapes of Scotland and rural Yorkshire - along with the historic streets of London - as being among the "fabulous and varied" places to walk in.

But when it comes to the best places to go walking in winter, Cornwall and Sussex are counties offering "exhilarating coastal walks without the crowds", while the area around Lisvane Reservoir on the outskirts of Cardiff, which she noted is well-known for its winter fowl.

And low-level walks around lakes and reservoirs are good places for beginners to start, Ms Castellina suggested, along with flat parks and city streets.

People looking to walk around the Sussex Coast may note that 14 km of it is in the South Downs National Park.

This includes Beachy Head and the famous white cliffs of the Seven Sisters.
