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

Decathlon Belfast

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

Brilliant range of sports equipment. I went for a pretty random balance board and they had it in stock. Good knowledgeable staff too.

Best sports Store I've been in. Lots of choice and prices are reasonable too. Lots of parking spaces too. Highly recommended.

IKEA

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

Very variable in service levels, some staff can't do enough for you, some staff have no desire to be there! It's as busy as you'd expect and it's exceptionally convenient. If you're looking to get stuff delivered I would suggest the online option as there is no picking fee involved! It's convenient if you've a big enough car to collect the items you want as everything is flat packed. Tasty, cheap food, should keep most people happy.

My favourite store for furniture which is good value and hard wearing plus easily put together. They have a nice restaurant for a coffee or lunch whatever takes your fancy. It's not a place where you can go for 20 minutes, set aside a good two hours because you'll want to see it all.

Recce NI

70-72 Knocknagoney Ave, Belfast BT4 2PZ, UK – 028 9543 0170

Great Outdoor activities shop, all at the lowest prices around.

I was in recce ni on friday and its good to see that they supply 5:11gear. Brilliant shop. Very friendly will be back again.

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..
