Walking & Walking Tours
From the flatlands of the Fens to the hills of the Wolds, Lincolnshire's wide-open spaces and big skies are tailor made for walking.
Stepping Out is a collection of walks throughout quiet, unspoilt countryside in the heart of rural Lincolnshire. North Kesteven is a district of picturesque villages and exquisite medieval churches, a living landscape steeped in history and rich wildlife.
There are a number of walks that have been carefully chosen to bring our unique heritage to life and with accessible routes ranging from less than three to nine miles, there is a walk for everyone to go Stepping Out! Take a look at the full selection of walks available and download the leaflets that are full of information about each walk, car parking, suggested places to stop for refreshments and places to visit along the way.
Explore hidden valleys and soak up the views during the annual Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival. Or tackle the 147-mile Viking Way that winds its way between the Humber Bridge and Oakham in Rutland.
Follow in the footsteps of one of the most famous poetic voices of the 19th century on the Tennyson Trail weaving around Lincolnshire's rolling landscapes that inspired Alfred Lord Tennyson, who was born and brought up in the county.
Or try the ‘Water Rail Way', a traffic-free path along the former Lincoln to Boston railway, brought to life with unique works of art, including of Lincoln Red cows - as well as more inspiring sculpture celebrating Tennyson.
For woodland walks, the Lincolnshire Limewoods, particularly Chambers Farm Wood, offer glorious walking throughout the year while the ancient woods within Grimsthorpe Park are where King Henry VIII once hunted deer.
Or how about a city tour? Join a Lincoln city guide on a Cathedral Quarter walking tour... or one with a twist, a Lincoln Ghost or Roman walk.
