Becky Jones and Clare Lewis set up Adventure Walks Books in 2012 after writing the Adventure Walks for Families guidebooks, published by Frances Lincoln.   

Adventure Walks books were created out of a desire to inspire families to get back to the simple things in life and do something together that's good for everyone: getting the family out for a good walk.  Children enjoy exploring the great outdoors and, once you get them out there, they love nothing better than a family ramble in the woods.  It's the getting them out of the house that's the tricky bit.  That's where Adventure Walks for Families fit in: they are walks with a twist. Family friendly walks (not too long; good place to eat etc) are woven into adventures and given different themes to entice and inspire: children’s classic stories; characters from history; stories of myths and legends.  Each walk is turned into an adventure.  The books dip into nostalgic childhoods to find fun and diverting things to do that so many urban kids seem to have forgotten: climbing trees, getting muddy, building shelters, foraging for food, going on a scavenger hunt, tracking and trailfinding, making paper boats, naming wild flowers and identifying trees, reading stories and singing songs.   London Adventure Walks applies the same formula to the city: interweaving the stories and history of London in ways that appeal to children.  Illustrated by children, enjoyed by children and tried and tested by children, Adventure Walks will give families a great, mostly free day out.
