The best walks in Britain have been revealed with three Cornwall locations making the list.

Travel experts from Which? curated a longlist of 75 of the nation's favourite and most well-trodden single-day walks (under 15 miles).

In December, they then surveyed 1,807 of their panel members to discover the cream of the crop. Only the walks achieving a minimum sample size made the list.

Regions with most high-quality walks

The Lake District proved the most popular region for high-quality walks, claiming six spots in the table.

The Peak District, Cornwall and Northumberland each boast three of the best walks, while Dorset, Snowdonia, London, Surrey and the North York Moors have two each.

Yorkshire's Malham Cove and Gordale Scar achieved a superb 89 per cent walk score in the survey. Visitors were impressed by the cove’s amphitheatre-shaped cliffs which lead up to a limestone pavement, where a scene from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was filmed.

Best walks in Cornwall

The joint second-best walks were both in Cornwall and scored 88 per cent. The tiny Botallack Mine Walk scored five stars for peace and quiet, and scenery; at one mile long, it is the joint shortest walk among the top 51, alongside Brimham Rocks in North Yorkshire.

The more challenging seven-mile Lizard Peninsula Circuit, around the most southerly tip of mainland Britain, gained five stars for places of interest, scenery and wildlife, with rare, red-billed chough birds as well as basking sharks and seals calling it their home.

In the Which? survey results, only two other routes – Solva to St Davids and Blakeney Point – equalled this mark for wildlife.

Coming in 32nd in the list is the third Cornish location, the St Ives to Zennor walk. While only scoring 1 star for accessibilty it got 5/5 for scenery, also scoring highly for food and drink, peace and quiet, place of interest and wildlife.

Rory Boland, editor of Which? Travel, said: “The UK has an amazing variety of walks and with its magical connection, the most popular route in our survey was a worthy winner.

“From breathtaking rolling hills and lake loops to historic hikes, clifftop paths and the shingle beaches below, there is a route for every taste and ability.”
