Uswitch have crunched the numbers and compiled a list of the top ranked walks around the UK, including London, which not only shakes up people’s daily lockdown routine (and shows them how many calories they can burn doing it) but also honours the most famous born and bred musicians!
We have paired up the top three music artists walkers can listen to with a choice of five different walks, each with an average distance, time, difficulty and star rating. Comparing 20 different locations in the UK, we found the top 10 walks across the country using a simple scoring system, a perfect way to round off National Walking Month. Here is a link to the full Uswitch article
Our accompanying music insights will tell you the top three music artists (bands and singers) from your local area, with a link to their music to listen to on the chosen walk. Additionally, we have also devised an easy to use tool that calculates users’ energy output when selecting one of the 100 walks.
