In a brand-new, fun format for BBC Daytime, each week five people go head-to-head to discover the best walks the UK has to offer.
If there’s one thing people love in Britain, it’s a great walk. Whether it’s a trip to the seaside to soak up the rays, a challenging hike up a rugged mountain, or a picturesque river-side stroll, the UK is home to some of the most breathtaking spots. It could be for the jaw-dropping views or the great company, or just the joy of being outdoors.
In this new 15-part series, people from all walks of life across the UK will have to pull out all the stops. Taking it in turns to lead the walk, the others will rate the quality of the route, picnic, views and entertainment.
Come rain or shine, uphill or down dale, will they give 10/10 or a measly 1?
Teresa Peter’s, our luxe life coach, will be taking on the challenge, repping the North East. From taking the walkers to Kielder, in the west of Northumberland, England’s largest forest with over 200 square miles of trees and providing a traditional Northumbrian picnic, complete with pease pudding and pan haggerty, she’s certainly showing the gang how to do it ‘North East Style’ and we couldn’t be prouder.
She’s done half marathons, a full marathon, Tough Mudder and a cycle all the way to Edinburgh – so I think it’s safe to say she’s going to pull out all of the stops.
At the end of the week, the winner will walk off with a voucher for outdoor gear, and the coveted “Golden Walking Stick”. So let the challenge commence. It’s time to Take A Hike!
