You will have heard the saying "There is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing" and, as you will know, the weather in Britain can be unpredictable.

To ensure that you get the best from your walking holiday, you should ensure that you are properly equipped.

The following list is a guide to what we consider essential:

  • Waterproof jacket and overtrousers (raingear)
  • Boots or strong walking shoes with cleated soles and ankle support
  • Thick socks for use inside walking boots
  • Small rucksack/back pack
  • Comfortable trousers (not denim fabric as this becomes heavy, cold and uncomfortable when wet)
  • Extra sweater or fleece/pile jacket
  • Waterbottle and/or flask
  • Warm hat and gloves
  • Sun hat and sunscreen
  • Waterproof map case (for self-guided holidays)

Other items which are not essential, but which you might like to consider:

  • Shorts
  • Small foam ‘sit mat’
  • Trekking poles or walking stick
