Campaign for National Parks is delighted our corporate supporters Snaptrip has released a series on accessing the National Parks without a car.

Getting to and around the National Parks without a car is unacceptably difficult. Campaign for National Parks has long campaigned for changes to transport in the National Parks so that everyone can sustainably access these special places, so we are delighted Snaptrip has started a new series explaining the best ways to visit the Parks without a car.

Starting in the Lake District, the guide means you too can explore the most beautiful and famous places in the country without undermining the beauty, peace and tranquillity of the landscape. The guide looks at bus and train options as well as looking at the cheapest way of getting to this amazing National Park.

For many, lacking transport options means they cannot reap the benefits of visiting the National Parks. A quarter of households do not have a private car – often households in the most marginalised communities and whom stand to benefit the most from visiting the National Parks.

Ruth Bradshaw, policy and research manager at Campaign for National Parks said: “We are delighted Snaptrip supports our campaign to improve sustainable travel to the Parks. The more people who visit the National Parks without damaging these landscapes in their car the better.”

Snaptrip is a holiday company providing a best price guarantee on last minute UK holidays for over 60,000 cottages, lodges and apartments.
