Slow Ways

The walking routes displayed here are Linear Walks, known as "Slow Ways". Unlike Circular walks, Linear Walks begin in one location, and end in another.

We try hard to make sure that all our walking routes keep you away from traffic as much as possible and are as direct as possible without missing any sights along the way.
