Walking offers the best and most authentic way to experience the quintessentially beautiful countryside and for the English is ingrained in their culture, even having been regulated by law since the 1300s.

This year, Ramblers is offering a variety of moderate walking tours starting at just four miles a day to strenuous hiking trips of up to 20 daily miles, ranging from $500 to $5,000 per person. Travelers booking with Ramblers in February 2011 receive one nights' complimentary accommodation before or after the trip, which includes many of their hand-selected country inns and B&Bs.

Here are some highlights from their 2011 walking tours in England:

  • England's Coast-to-Coast Tour (9 or 16 days)

    Considered one of the best hikes in the world, and one of the most popular tours for Ramblers, they've added a second departure for this challenging trip that traverses the island from the Irish Sea to the North Sea, passing through some of the most stunning and varied scenery.

  • The Charming Cotswolds (7 days)

    This tour through the superbly picturesque countryside two hours north of London includes a series of gentle walks, ranging from five to ten miles a day, taking in charming villages with thatched cottages and spired churches, and rambling through rolling meadows and beech forests.

  • England's Lake District and England's Lake District: Inn-to-Inn (7 to 8 days)
