Speaking atOutdoor Recipes From Around the World
AboutAndrew is one of the country’s foremost authorities on walking – regularly writing for magazines like BBC Countryfile, Walk and Camping, appearing on BBC local radio and now writing, presenting and producing his own television series – just don’t ask him what Ben Nevis is like. Or Scafell Pike. He’s seen the top of Snowdon though… by going up on the train. No, Andrew isn’t your usual professional walker. His thing is short walks between 2 – 8 miles, all designed to be done within a day; suitable for families & friends – be they the human or canine kind; and always with a story, theme or purpose.
Andrew’s TV programme, Walks Around Britain, is the longest-running British walking series, and the team are currently filming season six. It’s available on 20 UK TV channels, around the world on Amazon’s Prime Video and now on the dedicated video on demand subscription site Walks Around Britain+.
He’s a keen camper (he owns six tents and a caravan) and his family – wife Amanda, daughters Alannah (16) and Olivia (10) – regularly combine camping trips with walks. With four border collies (Merlin, Mac, Mysti and Mocha) Andrew is really tuned into promoting safe and responsible dog ownership and handling whilst out walking.
Today, across the Walks Around Britain website, social media, DVDs, podcasts, the television series, books and magazines, Andrew is possibly the most influential outdoor journalist in the country.
Andrew said of his role on at the Caravan & Motorhome Show 2020; “I’m very excited to be asked back to take visitors to the show on a virtual tour around some of my favourite places to go walking in the British Isles, and hopefully inspiring them to go out and do the walks themselves.”
