For many shorter journeys, walking can be the best way to get around. It's an underrated form of exercise but walking is ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels who want to be more active. It can help you to meet your recommended 30 minutes of moderate exercise a day. Plus, it's free.

Planning your journey

You can use a walking journey planner to find the best walking route to your destination. Alternatively, you can use a multimodal journey planner if you are planning to walk as part of a journey using different modes of travel such as bus or train.
