We warmly welcome walkers from overseas. The closest airport for all our walks is London Gatwick (LGW), although London Heathrow (LHR) is also not too far. We can arrange an airport pick-up to take you to the starting point of your walk if you wish, although all of our walks can also be accessed by train. Air fares are not included in our packages – these days the best deals are almost always directly with the airlines – but we can give you free advice on the best and most cost effective flights to reach us from anywhere in the world. All our walks are accessible by train from Gatwick airport or Ashford International station, served by the Eurostar trains, without having to go into London first.
South East England is one of the sunniest parts of Britain, particularly in the summer months, but it can also rain, so you should come prepared with waterproofs. Average figures for the climate in our part of England can be found here. The trails go through fields and woods, over stiles and up and down hills, often on uneven terrain. For the average walker, a pace of approximately 2 miles or 3 km per hour, not counting breaks, can be used to calculate walking times along the routes. A cell phone is useful, and we can arrange a phone or SIM card with a local number for you on request.
