About Walk Unlimited

Welcome to the official National Trail website brought to you by Walk Unlimited.

Walk Unlimited works in partnership with Natural England and Natural Resources Wales to promote National Trails. We love them and we want everyone else to have the opportunity to discover and enjoy them.

But that isn't all we do. Walk Unlimited work to promote and encourage walking and access to the outdoors in lots of different ways. We are not funded by government, or anyone else and we aren't a charity. We are a not for profit organisation - a social enterprise. We make our money by delivering projects for other people. You can see the kind of work we do on our website, it's quite varied. You may well have heard of some of the projects we deliver, but you probably won't know that we are behind them.

Some of the bigger projects include:

Walk London - for 10 years we've been working with Transport for London to deliver Walk London. Currently this involves delivering three weekends of free-guided walks each year. The walks are extremely popular, we organise between 30 and 40 different walks over each weekend for up to 4,000 people.

Walk4life - The place to find walks, and to create your own and see how long they are. This website was created for the Dept of Health as part of the Change4Life project. It's incredibly popular not only with the public but also with organisations looking for a place to promote their walks or walking events. With 90,000 walks on it, if you haven't seen it yet, you should take a look.

We help other people promote walking through creating walking maps, leaflets, websites and apps.

We are quite practical too, we carry out surveys, audits, write access audits for HLF bids, design bespoke surveys and monitor use levels using automatic counters. We advise on signage, accessibility, monitoring techniques and on reaching new customers.

Despite the name it isn't all about walking either, we work on equestrian and cycling projects, and general countryside work, such as access to green space or improving accessibility or understanding and improving perceptions of an outdoor space.

So if you like what you see here and you are looking for help with any similar project please get in touch, we'd love to talk to you.
