Hikes in the East Midlands are hugely varied, with something for everyone. Comprising the counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland, the region unsurprisingly contains some stunning countryside.


Where walkers are concerned, the region’s northwestern arm is its most spectacular. Here you find the Peak District National Park, home to arguably the finest walks in the East Midlands. From the dark atmosphere of its gritstone edges and its windswept moorland summits to the beauty of its limestone dales and green hills, the national park is a walker’s paradise.


The other large region of protected greenspace is the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a landscape of sublime rolling hills. Folklore fans will enjoy an amble through the remaining ancient woodland of Sherwood Forest, while Rutland Water is magnificent for lakeside rambles.
