Explore the most ancient path in England
Widely recognised as England’s oldest road, this beautiful, prehistoric trail stretches over 87 miles from Overton Hill near the Avebury World Heritage site in Wiltshire to Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire. The Ridgeway has always been valued by many walkers, horse riders and cyclists seeking enjoyment of the scenic landscapes through which it runs. Virtually the whole route is within either the Chilterns or the North Wessex Downs Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs).
One of only 16 designated National Trails, it is carefully managed by The Ridgeway Partnership, of which we are proud to be a founding member.
