Healthy, environmentally friendly and free, walking is the perfect way to get where you need to go, get more exercise, and boost your mental health and wellbeing.

Take a stroll through King George V playing fields, or along Vinery Lane and Sherford Road to get to Elburton village or walk further to reach the shops and library at Plymstock Broadway. Walking for exercise; loop around the Country Park and take in the views.

For those seeking to track their walking activity, try the free Active 10 app by Public Health England that records your brisk walking activity and tells you the benefits of regular exercise. In addition, the Plymouth Trails app features self-guided walking trails throughout Plymouth, allowing you to explore the city on foot and through new eyes.
