Unlike countries like Australia, there is a large amount of land within the National Parks that is owned by private landowners. Farmers and organisations like the National Trust are some of the landowners, along with the thousands of people who live in the villages and towns. National Park Authorities sometimes own bits of land, but they work with all landowners in all National Parks to protect the landscape.

The national parks include:
  • England, 10
    — The Broads, Dartmoor, Exmoor, the Lake District, the New Forest, Northumberland, the North York Moors, the Peak District, the South Downs and the Yorkshire Dales.
  • Scotland, 2
    — Cairngorms and Loch Lomond and the Trossachs.
  • Wales, 3
    — The Brecon Beacons, Pembrokeshire Coast and Snowdonia.

National Trails
• National Trails are long distance routes for walking, cycling and horse riding through the finest landscapes in England and Wales. In Scotland the equivalent trails are called long distance routes. There are 15 Trails in England and Wales (when complete 2 of these will be suitable for use by horse riders and cyclists along their entire length) and 4 in Scotland.

National Trails pass through some of the most stunning and diverse landscapes in Britain. There is something to suit everyone, from short walks to a 630 mile adventure.
