iFootpath has teamed up with Surrey County Council to bring you the Explore Surrey collection. This collection of 26 digital walking guides takes in the best of Surrey’s glorious countryside. Whether you're an adventurous walker or someone who prefers a short stroll, there's a walk to suit you.
The routes have been hand-picked by Surrey County Council’s countryside team, giving you a true flavour of the diversity, beauty and splendour of the county. You will discover ancient woodlands, chalk downland, meandering rivers, expansive vineyards, sweeping valleys, historic parkland and beautiful villages. There is plenty of historical interest along the way too. From gunpowder mills and semaphore towers, mills and pillboxes to historic churches and majestic stately homes, you may be surprised at how much there is to discover on your doorstep.
Like all iFootpath guides, the walks are richly described with full turn-by-turn directions, a live GPS-based map, photographs and plenty of fascinating notes of interest to enhance your journey. Simply download the iFootpath App to your phone and you’ll have all the information in the palm of your hand. iFootpath truly is the definitive modern walking manual.
‘We have loved working with Surrey County Council to create this collection of walks. There is something new to discover around every corner of the county; some things we were expecting and some true surprises. I hope everyone enjoys walking the routes as much as we did,’ explained Claire Sharp, co-founder of iFootpath.
Diane Cooper, Countryside Marketing Officer at Surrey County Council added: ‘This is a first for Surrey's countryside team and really brings our walks into the 21st century. We're hoping it will offer them to a much wider audience and that walkers will enjoy discovering our hidden gems –we're happy to receive any feedback.’
Experience, escape, explore and exercise. This new collection is all you need to know to get out there and enjoy Surrey's countryside on foot.
