We’re creating a network of walking routes that connect all of Great Britain’s towns and cities
What if there was an official network of walking routes connecting all of Britain’s towns, cities and national parks?
Volunteers all over the country have already drafted it! Over 120,000km of routes join up all of Great Britain’s towns and cities.
Now these handmade, crowd-sourced routes need checking. Can you help?
Slow Ways in the news
“Slow Ways is not just a tool to encourage us to walk more, it is a campaigning tool. Once a route is identified, there is something to defend and to improve” BBC News

Plan a Slow Ways journey
Use Slow Ways to discover suggested walking routes between neighbouring cities, towns and villages.
You can find routes by using the search box and by browsing the map – just click on the dots and lines. Plan longer journeys by combining Slow Ways routes in the Journey Planner.
To get started, sign up, then:
– Choose a Slow Ways route
– Walk, or wheel it
– Review it
Slow Ways isn’t a navigation app. Feel free to download routes onto your favourite walking app, print them out, draw them onto a map, or memorize them – the choice is yours.
Share your Slow Ways walks, stories and photos with other people. Our hashtag is #SlowWays.
Slow Ways stories
‘Tales from a Slow Way,’ Round 2, winners announced!
Last year we launched “Tales from a Slow Way,” a community stories project that enabled us to commission creatives and groups to work together to produce original stories situated around Slow Ways walking routes. We’re happy to announce we’re now able to support a further ten projects!
