The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Surf Mountain

Thanks again for helping us out on Saturday, Great advice on getting our kid a wetsuit, and giving us discount on some other stuff, The kids were running around the shop with travel suitcases wrecking the place and causing chaos and didn't get shouted at, after, you said we should visit "Boulder World" in Belfast, we went straight there... and spent over an hour with the kids in the climbing area for kids, what a great thing to do and resource for families, overall a great review... So folks don't buy online this summer and get the wrong size or material instead visit Surf Mountain in Lisburn and get the perfect advice and wetsuit.

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the country. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks..

Excellent park in the centre of Lisburn. Friendly and safe. Great play area for kids and a van selling tea ,coffee and ice cream.You can also watch band concerts in the Victorian bandstand and shows over the summer months.

Well used park particularly for football and tennis it has an adult outdoor gym and paths suitable for jogging. The children's playground is excellent and very busy in good weather. Parking however can be difficult at times

Belshaw's Quarry
