Yet if it’s the winter, you probably think there is no hope of going on a nice walk, as all the routes have probably been overtaken by the horrors of the cold. Never mind, however, as even if there is a bit of a chill in the air, you’ll be happy to know that there are in fact some hidden gems when it comes to wonderful winter walks.

Though imagine how great those historic buildings will look under the winter sunset, as the auburn leaves bristle around your shoes.
