Walking Planners

Walkit.com was an urban walking route planner which operated as a website and a mobile app. Although their route planner has now been discontinued, their website provides information and links to other walking route planners.

Travelwest is a website managed by the West of England Combined Authority (WECA) that provides excellent travel advice and information including walking information for Bristol and the surrounding area.
 
Go Jauntly is a new free community-based walking app. On the app you can find local walks that have already been created by the Go Jauntly team and existing users of the app. You can also create your own walking routes on the app to share with friends, family and colleagues. Go Jauntly launched the app in Bristol in May 2021 in partnership with Bristol City Council, and delivered a Webinar introducing the app to the University of Bristol community. A recording of the webinar is available here.
