Our Self Guided tours will immerse you in the best of the UK countryside and coast. You can bike or walk or at your own pace and in your own time, away from the crowds and back to nature. From the Cotswolds to Cornwall we have created a magical mix of our favourite routes, taking you to the best landmarks, landscapes and trails, so you can maximise your time in the fresh air, carefree with the wind in your hair. Discover the history and heritage of our National Trails, and rest your legs in traditional British Pubs and hand-picked hotels, where your luggage will be waiting for you every evening.
On our self-guided tours we believe in providing an unparalleled active and cultural experience through the magnificent English Countryside. It is the mix of biking and walking with visits to some of the most iconic places of interest which sets Active England Tours apart and immerses our guests in England at its finest. Windsor Castle, Oxford, The Cotswolds, Blenheim Palace, Bath and Stonehenge are just some of the highlights!
With routes for the novice walker through to the experienced cyclist our tours are relaxed and inclusive. Bike or hike as much or as little as you like, with a daily “bailout” option to ensure guests only need to cycle or walk the miles that suit them. England has some of the most picturesque scenery and beautiful historically significant sights, throughout the Cotswolds countryside and Cornwall coast waiting to be explored. Electric bikes are available on all of our cycle tours.
There is also the option to take the self-guided Coast to Coast Challenge – walk or cycle the breadth of England, following trails through National Parks, or tracking Hadrian’s Wall across the country.

We take all the hassle out of going on holiday, whether for a week or weekend away in the UK. Experience the best of England without any of the hassle – we’ll do all of that for you. We include all luggage transfers, accommodation, transfers, maps, and GPS instructions taking you to incredible iconic castles, islands, cliffs, beaches and ancient sites to visit along the way. We know every pub, restaurant, path, track, trail and more, and give you the best recommendations along our carefully curated routes and trips! Our tours are all an easy train journey from London and other major cities, so you can arrive refreshed and ready for your holiday or weekend.
Walk or bike with friends, family or as a couple on a magical tour through the countryside and coast of England. If you would like to turn this tour (or any of our tours!) into a private trip for your family or friends, we can create a tour to suit your group exactly – whether you want more time by the ocean, along the coast, on top of cliffs or hiking and biking through secluded valleys and woodlands. Whether you want to stay in 5 star hotels, or go glamping, spending your evenings around a fire pit – there is a tour for everyone!
