English Lakeland Ramblers Reveals Top Ten Trends for Travelers With Wanderlust in 2011

MONTCLAIR, VA--(Marketwire - February 22, 2011) - Leading walking tour company Ramblers shares their insights on walking trends:

1. The Uber-Green Exercise: Walking! -- Celebrities like Brooke Shields and Art Garfunkel walk for exercise. Apart from the health and environmental benefits, walking tours offer the most in-depth way of experiencing a destination.

2. Mysterious Scottish Isles for History Buffs -- Scotland's Hebrides are one of the most mysterious places on walking tours to Scotland, and a trip to prehistoric sites, peaceful sandy beaches, and unspoilt nature feels like time travel.

3. Extend Your Royal Wedding Tour With a Trip to The English Countryside -- For those travelling to London for the royal wedding, why not extend the trip to the countryside to get away from the hustle and bustle and experience the "real England."

4. Couples that Walk Together, Talk Together -- With their hectic schedules, the slow pace of walking allows couples to rekindle their connection with plenty of opportunities to talk.

5. Jane Austen Fans Unite -- Fans of the literature legend will love Ramblers' new self-guided walking tour in beautiful Hampshire that inspired her works.

6. Retrace Shakespeare's Steps -- Following a route the great poet may have taken, this self-guided walk passes from Stratford through Oxford and Kew, before finishing in London.

7. Walkers Cherish Creature Comforts -- After exercising during the day, many walkers seek comfort at night at Ramblers' hand-picked and cozy Inns and B&Bs.

8. Women Get Active and Walk Together -- Once the kids are grown up, many empty nesters want to get active and social on a walking trip with friends or relatives such as mother and daughter.

9. Family Reunions and Intergenerational Travel -- Walking tours to England, Scotland or Wales, such as a luxury private tour of the Lake District, are great to get the family together.

10. Self-guided tours for More Spontaneity -- New for 2011, Ramblers offers self-guided tours for independent travelers wanting to walk at their own pace yet still have all of the logistics taken care of.
