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!

Great service and a good range. Just to update my two year old review: Really like cotsworld as a store. Great range, nice stores and great staff. Do a good BMC discount as well. Really like the Leyden St branch as it is big store, well stocked and never gets too busy

Cotswold Outdoor London - Holborn

311-318 High Holborn, London WC1V 7BN, UK – 020 7831 9957

The young lady serving me at counter is very friendly and knowledgeable on many outdoor clothes products. I have been a customer for outdoor clothing for more than 35 years and worked outside for 47 years. Although the shop has a little less stock than Covent Gardens from the same supplier, she can look up at the Internet to search for the special brand of clothes I wish to order. They will be delivered promptly by the company. Very well laid out shop in very friendly environment.

Extremely knowledgeable staff who are friendly and social. Great range of products and superb value.
