Walks And Walking – Downloadable Walks in Hampshire and Isle of Wight

The National Trust are now offering downloadable Walks in Hampshire and Isle of Wight in the ‘Visit – Local To You – London and South East’ section of their website which you can find when you click on the National Trust banner here.

There are approximately 20 Isle of Wight walks ranging from a mile or so up to around 8 mile walking routes in this glorious Hampshire countryside. One of the walking routes that really stood out for me was the Tennyson Down walk which I did a year or so ago – probably one of the loveliest walks I’ve ever done. I was on my own, it was a gorgeous day and the route was easy to follow and a good balance of terrain, few steep climbs but nothing of a challenge, not very muddy and offering amazing 360 views of the island.
