walkit.com is the urban walking route planner for 70+ British towns and cities (UK only - see list below).
walkit.com can help you find your way on foot around London and more than 40 other British towns and cities.
With walkit.com you can generate optimised A to B as well as circular walking routes. Each route includes a map, a set of written turn-by-turn directions, an estimated walking time (according to a slow, medium or fast pace), a journey distance (miles and kilometres), a Calorie burn and a carbon saving.
Taking advantage of your phone's location-awareness, the map can be set to follow you as you walk. Following walking directions has never been easier!
For A to B routes you can choose between a direct (i.e. the quickest) route or a 'less busy' one that will try and avoid major roads and favour off-road paths through parks and by waterways. In London and Cambridge you can even choose a 'low pollution' route.
With our circular routes you can choose between a range of times (between 30 mins and 4 hours) and walking speeds, helping you find health or leisure routes right from your front door.
walkit.com currently finds walking routes for 43 cities and towns in England and Scotland, with support for more planned. This app will stay current with all cities we support, which at the time of writing include:
The app currently only supports routes in the cities and towns listed above, and is only available with English language support.
