Avon Valley Path

If you are looking to head on down for a really long trek, then this is something that you need to try on for size. The walk route is around 34-miles and is a full day’s activity for the entire family. It takes you through all the gorgeous parts of Hampshire such as the wonderful cathedral-rich town of Salisbury, Christchurch Priory and more.

There are five sections on this walk and you can choose any combination you want. Depending on what you pick, you could end up with a walk through meadows filled with ponds and some incredible wild life or you could be heading down some peaceful little villages along the high chalk downland.

Stop wherever you want and have a picnic or just walk into one of those village pubs and make a trip out of it – the Avon Valley Path will always be a special place.
