Walk Awhile Walking Vacations England UK
We are a family run ‘tour operator’ based
in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in the
UK. We are committed to operating a Responsible
Travel Policy (RTP) that is supportive and in sympathy with
the local communities and environment. This is in line with the
stated aims on all our holidays which invites its customers to ‘discover
hidden Kent, its history and its people’.
We actively encourage all customers to use public transport to access
the Kent Downs (AONB). We advise customers where they can purchase
locally produced food and produce along the route of their walk and
encourage them to use local services.
Whilst on their walkings vacation in the UK we
also actively encourage customers to visit local social projects
such as the Elham Valley Vineyards, run by the Vale of Elham Trust
that provides work opportunities for people with learning disabilities.
We also have encouraged people to walk the North Downs Way for the
benefit of nationally recognised charities. Since 2002 we have organised
charity walks on behalf of the many national charities including The Children’s
Society, John Grooms and Christian Aid.
In addition we are committed to an on-going reduction of its energy
usage inline with the Annual Environmental Energy Plan (AEEP) for
the business. We are committed to using recycled products wherever
this can be accommodated within the needs of the business and will
continue to adhere to its off-road 4x4 policy and continue to publicise
the reasons to all customers.
Experience the peace, the history and the beauty
