You've told us that sometimes it's not quite enough to just walk from A to B. So now if you're exploring on foot, walking for your health or just for the sheer enjoyment of it, you can plan a circular walk from 15 minutes up to 4 hours:
- Stretch your legs during your lunch hour
- Discover new routes to walk the dog
- Get your 30 minutes of exercise a day, wherever you are
- Going away for the weekend? Explore the city on foot from your hotel
What is a circular walk?
A circular walk is one which starts and ends back in the same place. Like all walkit.com walks, when you plan a route we will provide you with a map, walking directions and your key journey information.
How to find a circular walk
To generate a circular walk just click on the green 'Circular' tab on the journey planner at the top left of this page. There are three easy steps:
- Enter your start point (postcode, street name or place of interest)
- Select your time and speed
- Press 'Go'
Here are a few examples you might also like to try:
Notes on circular walks
- Like our 'less busy' routes, we try and favour quieter streets and 'off-road' paths when generating circular routes. But unfortunately we can't guarantee to find you a 'nice' walk.
- Our timings may be out by a few minutes – it's not always possible to get it spot on. We prioritise 'less busy' routes, where we can find them, over hitting precise target times.
- Longer circular routes may take you out of the town/city limits, in which case the walk may be along roads (where we can't guarantee there are pavements) as we haven't yet captured footpath data in the urban/rural fringes of many of our towns/cities.
- At the moment you don't have the facility to 'drag' the route in a different direction.
Do give circular walks a try, and let us know what you think.
