The research was done by Millets, the outdoor experts. They analysed reviews from TripAdvisor, which included the words beautiful, pretty and picturesque. Millets also looked at all types and lengths of walks, including everything from short walks on the beach to huge hikes.

Kiera Baxter, Millets’ marketing executive and adventurer said: “Wherever you choose to walk, it is essential that you do so responsibly in order to maintain the route’s beauty. We recommend avoiding car journeys where possible, stick to public footpaths and ensure you leave no trace of being there, taking all litter away with you.

“It’s also essential to prepare appropriately for every walk you embark on. Plan your route prior to setting off, pack plenty of water and snacks to keep you energised throughout the day and wear sensible, weather-appropriate footwear and clothing for the route.”
