Walks with Taste


The Ribble Valley is home to some of the best gastropubs in Britain which is combined with a walker’s paradise – it makes for the most perfect day out. The stunning landscapes are criss-crossed with footpaths and bridleways with a huge selection of circular walks which vary in distance and terrain so there is truly a walk for everyone! No map reading will be required – it’s easy and you are simply spoiled for choice!

Each walk centred on a participating venue where visitors can park, lace up their boots and enjoy a walk in the scenic natural beauty of the Ribble Valley and work up a healthy appetite amid the extraordinary scenery – after the walk satisfy your taste buds at the chosen gastropub or characterful county inns and get a well-deserved drink and enjoy the authentic taste of Lancashire! Many of the outstanding eateries have won national awards for their food and hospitality so book now to admire and enjoy an award-winning venue, relax and let them do all the work.

In summer, theses walks and venues are extremely popular as you can probably imagine. However, don’t be fooled, these walks are popular all year round, every establishment welcomes you warmly to dry off and enjoy some heart-warming food, even some with cosy log fires. But please always remember, in order to avoid disappointment,  it is recommended that you check opening times and availability of the venue in advance.

So, whether you are just a beginner or a frequent walker, don’t be afraid to embark on a ‘Walk with Taste’ as they are designed for everyone – just find one that suits you and don’t look back on the unbeatable experience and memories you will make which will last a lifetime.

And if you would like to explore this enchanting corner of Lancashire in greater depth, most of the participating establishments also offer comfortable accommodation.
