Is your business along one of England's Great Walking Trails?
If you're an accommodation provider, pub, food and drink provider, attraction, transport provider, luggage handler, or tour operator on one of the National Trails listed on the right, this site is for you!
The England's Great Walking Trails project has secured £1m in funding from the Discover England Fund. We're working together to promote walking holiday packages to visitors from Germany, the Netherlands, and the USA. The project will produce a collection of walking holidays for visitors looking for a combination of challenge and comfort. Find out more about the project.
An important part of the England's Great Walking Trails is our programme of business support, designed to help you make the most of your local trail and attract more overseas visitors.
Contact the Business Support Coordinator for your local trail. They've all been chosen for their expertise and understanding of tourism businesses like yours. In September and October we'll be running marketing workshops near you. This is your chance to find out more, learn about the key target markets, understand the travel trade and meet colleagues in your area.
Take a look at how we can help you for advice on welcoming walkers, developing itineraries and other marketing advice.
You might also want to join our private facebook group to pick up more tips, get updates and meet other businesses participating in this project.
We'll post our project updates on this page so please do keep checking back to see what we're doing.
