Best Hiking Destinations in England

“Hiking is not escapism; it’s realism. The people who choose to spend time outdoors are not running away from anything; we are returning to where we belong” – Jennifer Pharr Davis

Hiking is like living a thousand moments in a span of hours. While England has plenty of hiking options, Western England and Northern England touching Scotland have breathtaking suggestions to hike to the highlands and wild. In this write-up, I will cover the most prominent, picturesque, and pleasant-to-eyes hiking options for my readers. So, pack your bags because we are about to climb to heavenly storytelling!

The Isle of Skye, The Quiraing :
Quairang is a beautiful yet bizarre kind of land formation in the north of Skye making it a popular attraction not only to hikers or nature lovers but to geologists and scientists. Being one of the best hiking spots in England, Quairang is best experienced when it is actually walked. The myriad vistas will enchant your mind with their breathtaking beauty.

Scafell Pike, Lake District:
One of the best hiking destinations in England is Scafell Pike, the tallest mountain in England. It is so popular that it remains crowdy all hiking season. There are multiple routes to hike to the tallest natural landscape in England. While most of the crowd climbs through the route Westdale, a handful of adventurous spirits like to push themselves through the North side, beginning in Seathwaite. Known as the “Corridor Route”, this nine-mile trail is worth an effort.

West Highland Way, Glasgow to the Highlands:
The extremely spectacular and astonishing hiking trail in England with Waterfall is the West Highland Way, a journey from Glasgow to the Highlands. The beauty of West Highland Way can’t be contained in words. Movies like Harry Potter and Victor Frankenstein are filmed here. One of the toughest but most wonderful & rewarding sections of this entire trail is Kingshouse to Fort Williams (a 22 mile of sheer magic).


Hadrian’s Wall Path:
Emperor Hadrian and his bewildering army of 15,000 men have erected something of a marvel by themselves. This picturesque route spans from lush green fields to city streets to highlands and to the Roman forts that dotted its way. The entire stretch is about 84 miles and boy, there is an unmissable charm in walking this snake way. Soak up all the history and culture on the way as you absorb the fresh air and brilliant scenes on the trail.

Snowdonia National Park, Wales:
Snowdonia is yet another best place to go for a hike in the UK. Being another peak in the list, I would recommend you see it through the prism of a challenge rather than just another hike. Though we talked about the peak, the entire national park is worth an exploration. I’ve been here multiple times, and this place is definitely one of the best hiking destinations in and around England.

Despite the fact that hiking tests stamina and health in you, it is one of the most fulfilling outdoor activities to practice and cultivate one’s interest. Hiking is like keeping your heart healthy, eyes pretty, and soul enriched!

    Best places to celebrate Halloween in the UK this spooky season!

    The autumn season brings a new scent to the air, where we bid adieu to summers and approach winter. The localities are filled with orange and brown tones, dry leaves on the streets and spooky stories in the households. One can feel a sense of calmness and peace in the surrounding. The cold breeze caressing through the hair and giving little chills with a soothing sound can be heard throughout this time.  

    A significant celebration held in the month of Autumn is Halloween— which every age group loves. Carving pumpkins is going on. The outfits are completed. But what if you want to go somewhere completely different come October 31st?

    Only if you have been living under a rock you might know the tradition followed on this day. In the United Kingdom, Halloween festivities sometimes feature parties where visitors are expected to arrive dressed in a costume that reflects the day’s theme. Others congregate to see horror films, either at home or in a theatre. Some youngsters went trick-or-treating.

    Finding the best places in the UK to celebrate Halloween is indeed a daunting task. In this blog, we are sharing the top 5 places you should visit this Halloween in the UK. 

    1. Pumpkin picking, Tulleys Farm, Surrey

    They say nothing defines “America” like apple pie, but we think a trip to the pumpkin farm gives the pie a run for its money. This is an incredible location to visit and one of the best places to celebrate Halloween in the UK, with pumpkins ideal for tasty pies and carving terrifying faces. The farm is open all day, with the scarier activities beginning at 6 p.m. After you’ve finished choosing pumpkins, the farm also has one of the top escape rooms in the UK, as well as other exciting and terrifying Halloween events. Admission to the farm has a price(but pumpkins are priced separately!) and is offered on weekends beginning in late September.

    Get those pumpkins and carve scary faces out of them with some lights and spooky music.

    2. Fright Festival at Warwick Castle, Warwick

    What’s Halloween without reminiscing about the dreadful old castles? Warwick Castle is one of the country’s oldest, built on a timber fort established by William the Conqueror in 1068. With that in mind, it’s safe to assume that some historical residents will remain. Building on this legacy, Warwick Castle hosts a Fright Festival with various activities based on age and tolerance for spookiness. The children will enjoy the Haunted Castle, where historic occupants will enlighten them about the castle’s terrifying history. The Castle After Dark celebrations will push the limits of your tolerance for adults who enjoy the darker side of Halloween. The court also provides overnight accommodations for the bravest of us. The Festival has begun and you should take a visit to the castles.

    3. The London Dungeon, London

    The London Dungeon prides itself on being “The Home of Halloween.” This terrifying attraction, located on the banks of the serpentine River Thames in the heart of the English capital, promises a view into the city’s underbelly and is a great destination to celebrate Halloween in the UK.  You’ll meet the enigmatic Jack the Ripper and enter a medieval torture cell. There are also thrilling rides that will have your heart pounding. Special activities are always planned for the spookiest day of the year, but you’ll most likely need to make a reservation.
    While exploring the eerie London Dungeons, you’ll need to maintain social distance. Furthermore, visitors who have pre-purchased tickets but are unable to go due to coronavirus limitations can contact to reschedule their vacation for any time before the end of the year.

    4. Bodmin Moor, Cornwall

    Bodmin Moor covers an area of 80 square miles in the heart of north Cornwall. It is a harsh and wild area with jagged tors and verdant valleys that drip with streams. It is also thought to be one of the most haunted areas in the country. Ghost hunters frequent the trails to see if they can communicate with the “other side.” You might spend your Halloween weekend cosying up at Jamaica Inn. But don’t get too comfortable since it’s reputed to be haunted by the ghosts of long-forgotten smugglers and highwaymen!

    5. Alton Towers, England

    Alton Towers is one of the top Halloween attractions in the UK and one of England’s leading theme parks. It may be more renowned for its high-octane rollercoasters than for eerie nighttime activities, but Halloween changes everything. Guests are welcome to attend the Scare fest on October 31st. It keeps the resort open till late, allowing you to terrorize yourself by riding the twisty loop-de-loops in the dark. There are also terrifying mazes and spooky ghost homes to explore if you dare! Alton Towers’ rides and slides are now open. Guests must, however, download the NHS Test & Trace app and utilise the on-site QR codes to check in. To ride the rollercoasters, you must also wear a mask! 

    Though you can find some other major attractions to celebrate Halloween, these just must have to be on your list. Well. looks like we have got you all sorted for this Halloween in the UK. We’d also like to give a special mention to Edinburgh, it has many castles, and you never know what special events you might come across in the streets.
