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.
