Find the best Leicester walks. The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional resource for all walkers, hikers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to leader led walks to any really arduous walks within the Shaftesbury Junior School area.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Cotswold Outdoor Leicester

Highcross Shopping Centre, High Street, Leicester LE1 4FB, UK – 0116 478 2918

Just be in to the newly opened Cotswold; I was really glad to see a branch of this store opened in Leicester. Sadly, however, I was disappointed. The range of stock is extremely limited. If you wanted a rucksack, you're in business, but the ranges of outdoor wear were scant. Specifically I was looking for a light full zip fleece - the sort of thing for times of warmer weather. In Berghaus, my favourite brand, there was one only and rather too expensive for my pocket. In other brands, very little. The Berghaus section altogether had only about six different items! Looks like I shall still be buying online as usual. It is early days so maybe things will improve but I doubt the shop is big enough to increase the range of stock. Perhaps it aims to be a shop window only but in these times of high rents and rates and increasing online sales you have to wonder about this. I sincerely hope I am wrong.

The North Face

Highcross Shopping Center, 5 Shires Lane, Leicester LE1 4FT, UK – 0116 253 8867

Just wanted to share what amazing customer service I received from Rhian. She helped me select the correct sized bag and had all sorts of useful information to share. I had no idea that the North Face do price match, I had went to blacks earlier and they didnt have what I wanted. Thankfully, they did and also price matched for me. If you need any kind of help speak to her. Happy Days!

Excellent Staff, so so helpful and friendly to all customers very pleased with the visit got the items I wanted fast๐Ÿ˜Š


46 High Street, Leicester LE1 5YN, UK – 0116 216 9586

I returned some faulty boots with no quibbles, bought some more boots + socks + t shirt with an added 20% discount. Very helpful and pleasant staff. Well recommended ๐Ÿ˜

A shop that sells modern items at a bit of an elevated price I think

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!
