The Outdoor Guide

The Outdoor Guide (TOG) is a unique online resource for all things outdoors. Set up by the nation's favourite walker, Julia Bradbury, and her sister Gina, it publishes information on walks all around the UK and beyond, with route details, maps and more. We've teamed up with them to provide information for walkers, so now many of these walks feature Cool Place or two to stay, eat and drink along the way!

But that's not the only reason we love TOG. It's an online space that brings together like-minded companies to inspire people to get outdoors and explore the UK. It promotes sustainability and accessibility and like us is keen to find and share all the hidden gems we've found. From families to wheelchair users, weekend strollers to serious hikers, we're pretty sure TOG has a walk for you. Join with us and TOG in celebrating all the UK has to offer to lovers of the Great Outdoors!
