A walking route which starts in Worcester has been named among Britian’s best in a new list by The Telegraph.

The waking route is called Monarch’s Way and it starts in Worcester and ends in Shoreham-on-Sea, Sussex.

With the route being 625 miles long and estimated to take around 30-60 days, you might want to split it up and try different parts of it!

What does The Telegraph say about the Monarch’s Way walking route?

The best section of the walking route is Boscobel loop which is 31 miles long and can be made into a two-day adventure from Cosford station, The Telegraph explains. You could spend the evening in Kemberton if you decide to walk this section of the route.

The best view point along the 625 mile route is said to be Dorset’s Golden Cap if you’re looking for a “glorious gaze along the south coast”.

If you fancy stopping for a pint along the way, the King Charles II pub is recommended as the best pub to stop at. This pub is believed to be the one where the King escaped through after the battle of Worcester.

The Telegraph explains that the full Monarch’s Way route isn’t offered by any tour operators but some trips overlap with the route.

One example is the Cotswold Walking Company’s Cotswold Finest trip which costs from £815pp for seven nights.

You could alternatively plan your own walk and order the guidebooks which are £11 from the Monarch’s Way website.

The Telegraph said: “In an attempt to follow King Charles II’s frantic flight after his Civil War defeat in 1651, the Monarch’s Way staggers drunkenly across the Midlands, the Cotswolds, the south-west and into Sussex, even doubling back on itself.

“This means it contains a huge variety – not least two World Heritage Sites, a National Park and six National Landscapes – though also some less-interesting linking terrain, in an effort to stick to Charles’s trail.

“Its continued existence relies on volunteer Trail Minders, who each monitor their patch – a huge undertaking.

“It was the LDWA website’s most-visited path-page in 2021, though maybe because people were Googling the then-monarch’s upcoming Jubilee. Few walkers thru-hike it. But look at a map – there may be a lovely bit near you.”
