The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Googies Restaurant Bar & Coffee House

15 Rendezvous St, Folkestone CT20 1EY, UK – 01303 246188

I love eating here. Had a most memorable breakfast this week. Full English served on a stack of buttermilk pancakes. Omg naughty but very very nice.

Atmosphere was great and the food was lovely! Although we waited 15 minutes for our drinks and 40 minutes for one bowl of fries to share. Had to ask how long our food would be and then the wrong food was brought out to us.

Le Cafe Ganmac

121 Sandgate Rd, Folkestone CT20 2BL, UK – 01303 255710

Trendy little cafe

The coffee is Wow and the service has that personal touch!

Sports Direct

Bouverie Pl, Folkestone CT20 3AU, UK – 0344 332 5367

amazing love it my good friends in there

A bit small but they literally have everything what a person needs!

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the country. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks..
