Whether you're planning a ramble with the family, a relaxed lunch with friends plus the chance to walk it off, or a romantic stroll in the countryside with one special person, you'll find plenty of suggestions in this guide for both interesting routes and reliable pubs. Over 50 great walks in the south-east of England, from the South Downs to the Chilterns, are meticulously described, each with easy-to-follow directions and a specially drawn map. Each (circular) route has its own special character - fine scenery, rivers, lakes or wildlife, for example - and features an attractive and welcoming pub. Many of the pubs are noteworthy in their own right - some for their history, or their location, or for the high quality of the food and drink served. Information for each walk includes: length and duration (between 4 and 8 miles); difficulty - walks are graded 1 to 5 according to how taxing they are (from easy to energetic); how to reach the starting point (by public transport or by car, and where to park); and details of the pub's address, opening hours and food provided.
