Pocket Routes

The Best British Walks in Your Pocket

It's All About The Detail

Our guides are designed to make your journey as pleasurable as possible and that means leaving nothing to chance! Each guide book is rigorously researched and that detail permeates each page, whether it’s the facilities available in each village, or who built and occupied that ruined castle, right down to the type of stile that’s coming up!

Planning Guide

All our books come with a detailed planning section, including an itinerary planner, public transport and accommodation guide, advice for beginners and so much more!

Route Notes

Our route notes are incredibly detailed and provide step by step guidance along the route. Every gate, every stile and every change of direction is provided, making navigation simple.

Annotated Maps

Our guides all include a detailed set of strip maps, with the route highlighted. Maps are provided in a PDF format so they can be viewed on a mobile device, or printed out and carried with you.
