Boxing Day Walk

Idyllic locations in the UK for a magical Boxing Day walk…

Boxing Day is the perfect opportunity to unwind and spend quality time with loved ones. The gifts from the previous day have all been opened, the turkey has been devoured, and a feeling of calmness and gratitude falls over us all on Boxing Day. Many enjoy an annual Boxing Day Walk with family and all of the team here at The Sweet Reason Company head outside on the 26th December, too. 

With a flask of your favourite tea and a box of our indulgent brownies or Christmas biscuits in hand, you're all set for an enjoyable wintry walk. But where should you go for your Boxing Day walk? Here, we've rounded up some of our favourite areas in the UK to make your post-Christmas stroll even more special.

The Cotswolds

Renowned for charming chocolate-box villages and stunning countryside, the Cotswolds offers a picture-perfect setting for your Boxing Day walk. Roam through the quaint streets of Bourton-on-the-Water or enjoy the 102-mile-long pathway along The Cotswold Way. Pause to enjoy your flask of tea and sweet treats – you'll feel like you've stepped into a storybook.

The Jurassic Coast

A Boxing Day walk along the Jurassic Coast in Dorset promises a memorable adventure. Watch the waves roll in as you wander along fossil-strewn beaches for a brisk Boxing Day walk.

The Lake District

Take a leisurely walk around Lake Windermere or explore the woodlands of Grizedale Forest. Enjoy a savoury snack amidst the grandeur of nature for a Boxing Day experience you won't soon forget.


Windsor Great Park

For those who prefer to stay close to the hustle and bustle of London, a walk in Windsor Great Park is the perfect choice. The park offers picturesque lakes, woodlands, and gardens, not to mention the grandeur of Windsor Castle.


The New Forest

For a family-friendly stroll, the New Forest is an ideal location. Look out for the ponies and deer that roam freely throughout the area as you explore the region.

The Scottish Highlands

For those looking for a more rugged and adventurous Boxing Day, the Scottish Highlands are a spectacular choice. Choose from a variety of trails in Glencoe, Cairngorms, or the Isle of Skye and revel in the untamed beauty of the Scottish wilderness.

Pembrokeshire Coast

If you're seeking a coastal escape for your Boxing Day walk, the Pembrokeshire Coast in Wales is a beautiful choice.
