Those on cultural tours of the UK should take in the coastal paths the country has to offer, it has been claimed.
Des De Moor, senior everyday walking officer at the Ramblers, said that with the recent hot weather, spending time near the sea and in woodlands is a way to shelter from the heat.
He stated that the outcry over plans by the coalition to sell many of the UK's woodlands shows just how valued they are by the public, who enjoy walking in them and admiring the flora and fauna which make them such beautiful places.
"In hot weather, coasts and other waterside routes, as well as woodlands, tend to be and feel cooler than open country so perhaps now is a good time to explore coastal and forest routes," Mr De Moor added.
One place those planning cultural tours of the UK for next year may wish to explore is the All Wales Coastal Path, which will open to the public in 2012.
A new study from McGill and Concordia universities observed pedestrians in nine cities around the world and found people are less likely to walk when temperatures dip below zero, when there's too much rain or too much snow.
