The best walks in Britain have been revealed with two Dorset locations making the list.

Travel experts from Which? curated a longlist of 75 of the nation's favourite and most well-trodden single-day walks (under 15 miles).

In December, they then surveyed 1,807 of their panel members to discover the cream of the crop. Only the walks achieving a minimum sample size made the list.

Regions with most high-quality walks

The Lake District proved the most popular region for high-quality walks, claiming six spots in the table.

The Peak District, Cornwall and Northumberland each boast three of the best walks, while Dorset, Snowdonia, London, Surrey and the North York Moors have two each.

Yorkshire's Malham Cove and Gordale Scar achieved a superb 89 per cent walk score in the survey. Visitors were impressed by the cove’s amphitheatre-shaped cliffs which lead up to a limestone pavement, where a scene from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was filmed.

Best walks in Dorset

Old Harry Rocks Circuit is the first Dorset location to appear in the list coming in at number 21.

This National Trust walk offers breathtaking views of the Jurassic coast and unique rock formations. It scored 5/5 for scenery and also scored highly for food and drink, place of interest and wildlife.

The second Dorset walk, and number 36 in the list, is another National Trust location, Golden Cap.

England's only natural World Heritage Site, it offers stunning coastline views, scoring full marks in the survey for scenery.

Rory Boland, editor of Which? Travel, said: “The UK has an amazing variety of walks and with its magical connection, the most popular route in our survey was a worthy winner.

“From breathtaking rolling hills and lake loops to historic hikes, clifftop paths and the shingle beaches below, there is a route for every taste and ability.”
