About Good Walking Books

GOOD WALKING BOOKS began as an idea of sharing walking journeys that we had experienced in Europe, South America and Australasia. Many people have said that they ‘would love to walk those paths, but don’t know where to begin’. So we set about to create a range of books, ebooks and educational courses to share our experiences.

Journey of the Month

The Coast to Coast Walk takes you through England’s most interesting national parks. We follow Alfred Wainwright’s classic hiking trail through the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and across the North Yorkshire Moors. “Early spring seemed the best time of the year to walk the route. It would still be slightly chilly with fewer fellow walkers, making accommodation easier to find. We figured that 18 days on the journey would give us sufficient time to soak up the beauty of the landscape and the history and character of this part of England. Ancient villages, market places, castles and rugged landscape are all part of the experience on this 309 km walking journey through the heart of Northern England”.
