Every parent dreams of idyllic family days out with the kids - but every parent also knows that, when it comes to a conflict between the attractions of computer games and the pleasures of nature's playground, it often feels as if a trip to the local park is as much as you can manage. The solution: Adventure Walks for Families. It will inspire parents and their children to go adventure-walking instead of resorting to the stock venues. How? By making walking so much fun! Becky Jones and Clare Lewis have put together 25 walks, each with its own theme (from Highwaymen and Hideouts in Epping Forest to the Survival of the Fittest in Darwin's Kent), all within easy reach of London and all planned to be manageable for families. Each outing is a complete day out, each one offers something to see, draw, collect or visit. Here is a step-by-step guide for a fantastic free day in the country.
"It's an absolute treasure trove for parents and children. Not just great walks, but songs, food, fascinating facts and fun things to do."

There should be such a little book of wonders for every major city in the land - a godsend for parents battling to get the Wellingtons on a pair of crossly kicking little feet as the familiar mantra trickles out treafully once more: "I - hate - walking! It's - BOR - ing!" Not no more, it ain't. - WALK magazine
