The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

IKEA

Holywood Exchange, 306 Airport Rd W, Belfast BT3 9EJ, UK – 020 3645 0000

Love the place especially restaurant. Lovely aspect watching departing planes at airport. Great place to wait for arrivals from airport. Well set out retail space constantly updated very helpful staff. Bargain corner for odd items at discounted prices. Nice food shop and lower cafe for quick snack. This is an example how it should be done.

Everything you need to make your living space a home. Grateful ideas on storage. Grab something to eat while the kids play on safety

Decathlon Belfast

Holywood Exchange Retail Park, Airport Rd W, Belfast BT3 9EJ, UK – 07763 256221

Good range, from kayaks and bikes, to archery, table tennis to golf. Good prices too. Probable not for specialist sports enthusiasts who want to be able to buy the very best, but great for the rest of us mortals.

Huge sports store so huge range of stuff at good prices. Have bought cycling , walking and camping gear here no complaints. When buying a small hike tent, checked reviews on touch screen, this really helped me choose. Tent is great and reviews where spot on. Staff,, some are very knowledgeable and helpful others aren't! Agree with others no one answers phone.

WalkingWorld.jpg
Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the country. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks..

Camping and Caravaning

Redburn Country Park

Old Holywood Rd, Belfast BT4 2HL, UK – 028 9185 3621

Great place for walking. This country park was a zoo before belfast zoo was built. Stunning views over Belfast, no public toilets

A nice place to take your dog for a walk. Great views of the lock and Belfast from this top.
