Long Distance UK Walking Holidays & Hiking Tours on the Pilgrims' Way and in the Kent Downs An area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) 

Our hiking & walking holidays have been designed to meet the needs of a wide range of walkers abilities, and have flexible start dates for convenience. Average distances walked are 10 miles, but can be extended for the more ambitious, and routes can be combined to cover a greater distance overall (or completed in shorter sections).  Luggage transfer is arranged and checked for you, daily support is available to help you with local knowledge.


All self-led holidays come with daily tracker support and include

luggage transfer, marked up maps and guidebooks as well as quality inn, hotel and guest house accommodation.


Walk Awhile is a family run business, established in 2002, and  based in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  We are committed to operating a Responsible Travel Policy that is supportive and in sympathy with local communities and the environment.  We advise customers where they can purchase locally produced food and produce along the route and encourage them to use local services.  We encourage all customers to use public transport to access the start of their holiday.

We are proud to have been awarded the Green Tourism Silver Award since 2006

All holidays include arrival and departure days, overnight accommodation prior to starting your walk and on arrival at your destination (e.g. a 6 day holiday includes 5 nights accommodation, and 4 days walking)

Local Inn, Hotel & Guest Houses Bedroom


We have gone out of our way to make sure that all the Inns, hotels and Guest House accommodation we use welcome walkers. You will find them to be friendly, with comfortable bedrooms. All bookings include breakfast.  Most inns and hotels have restaurants where we can book you a table for the evening meal if you wish or recommend somewhere locally.


You will be met by a Walk Awhile representative on arrival.  The tracker will issue you with maps and an itinerary for your holiday, along with useful tips on how to get the most from each day's journey.  While you are enjoying your walk the tracker will check that luggage has been collected and delivered.  They will be available at the end of the phone should you have any questions during the day.
