Bradders is back! Julia Bradbury has laced on her walking boots again and is all set to stride into your living room. She makes her small screen comeback this Friday following the birth of twin daughters Xanthe and Zena last year.
Each programme features walks under ten miles, taking the viewer up and down dales, fellsides and mountains, along valleys and coastal paths, across rivers and streams, and through fields and woodland. Ending with a perfect pub lunch or picnic treat. In addition The Outdoor Guide (TOG) the online resource is right by her side.
Julia’s new walking series begins this Friday at 8pm on ITV with Anglesey: The Coastal Walk. And in no particular order the other walks that will follow are:
Dorset: The Golden Cap Walk
The Cotswolds: The Cleeve Hill Walk
The Dales: The Malham Cove Walk
The Lakes: The Borrowdale Valley Walk
Cumbria: The High Cup Nick Walk
The South Downs: The Birling Gap Walk
The Peak District: The Kinder Scout Walk
Tune in as in her own inimitable style Julia brings each walk to life while you watch from your sofa. Then log on to TOG to go behind-the-scenes for a second equally delicious helping of exclusive out-takes, unseen footage and additional information on each walk, the local characters featured, and the best pubs, cafes and picnic spots.

To accompany the series is Julia’s personal written story which takes us on eight of the UK’s best-loved walks, show casing the beauty of Britain. As she navigates the reader through the sights and sounds, the flora and fauna and the past and present of eight fascinating and relaxing paths, Julia reveals there are still discoveries to be made, even on some of on the more well-trodden paths, including some excellent pubs.
Both a practical guide and a love letter to walking and walkers, this book explores who walkers are and how walking across a landscape brings its people together, and show even those who don’t live in the countryside are never more than a train ride away from stunning natural beauty. Drawing on the great British nature writing tradition and accompanied with maps and illustrations, this beautiful book will fit as well on a bookshelf as in a rucksack.
