Pushchair Friendly Walks Around the UK and Northern Ireland

Nature has a huge range of benefits for children as well as adults. In addition to getting fresh air, exercise, and a much-needed screen break, spending time outdoors can help to boost confidence and creativity, and it’s also great for mental and emotional health. If you have little ones who need to travel by buggy, this can be a challenge, which is why we’ve put together a list of the best pushchair friendly country adventures from around the UK and Northern Ireland.


Blickling Estate, Norfolk (4.5 Miles)

With acres of flat terrain, Norfolk is arguably one of the easiest places to get around with a pushchair. This flat multi-use trail can be easily accessed by buggies and prams, traversing pretty woods and farmland, with plenty of historical monuments along the way.

Blakemere (2.7 Miles) and Linmere (1.7 Miles) Trails, Delamere Forest, Cheshire

If you go down to Delamere Forest, you’re in for a big surprise: a giant Gruffalo sculpture! The Blakemere and Linmere trails are easily accessible. Go your own way, or if you prefer a guided tour, the family Gruffalo orienteering trail is available to purchase from the visitor’s centre.


River Ness and Caledonian Canal Circuit, Inverness (7.25 Miles)

Believe it or not, accessible walks in the Highlands exist: passing through quaint streets, towside and riverside paths dotted with cafes, pubs and shops, there’s plenty to do on this route, or you can take a break at Chanonry Point in the Moray Firth (look out for dolphins!)

Dun Deardail Fort, Fort William (6.25 Miles)

With amazing views over Ben Nevis and Glen Nevis, this route might appear too wild for buggy-users, but it’s surprisingly accessible. There are no bathroom facilities on the route itself, but these can be found at nearby attractions, like the Treasures of the Earth museum.

Northern Ireland

Botanic Gardens Circular, Belfast, County Antrim (1 Mile)

The Belfast Botanic Gardens has charmed visitors ever since the Victorian era. Wander through pretty gardens dotted with sculptures, or visit the Palm House, where hundreds of tropical plants are waiting to be discovered.

An Creagán Biodiversity Trail, County Tyrone (3 Miles)

This gentle, calming stroll through Glassagh Burn features gorgeous views of Cashel Mountain before passing the bogs of Creggan, where you’ll also find information panels on the local plants and wildlife.


Millennium Coastal Path, Carmarthenshire (13 Miles)

This scenic coastal route stretches from from Llanelli to Pembrey, with plenty of places to spot wildlife along the Loughor Estuary, but if that’s too far, you can choose to walk part of the route, stopping off at one of the many play areas nearby.

Llangollen Towpath, Denbighshire (6 Miles)

If you’re looking for a fun-packed day out, look no further than Llangollen (for native English speakers, here’s how to pronounce that double “L”). With even pathways, this route is great for pushchairs, and there’s plenty to discover, including the Llangollen Railway.

Staying Safe

When visiting rural locations, you may not see safety signs everywhere, so it’s important to take extra care and stay safe. Be aware of potential hazards, tide times and local weather before you leave, and keep an eye on pets and children. Further safety guidance can be found via the National Trust website, in addition to local visitor information.
