PLOT YOUR ESCAPE
PLANNING THE ADVENTURE IS HALF THE FUN
🌿GetOutside Inside 🌿
Over 50 national organisations in the outdoor recreation industry have come together to keep you connected with the outdoors and engaged with our natural environments whilst we all continue to self-isolate to help protect our communities. As a collective, we hope to educate, entertain, inspire the nation, sharing in your challenges and achievements to help keep everyone both mentally and physically positive.
And whilst we hope you can continue to enjoy the outdoors locally once a day, we urge you to stick to your garden or personal outdoor space where possible, and follow government guidance at all times.
Plot Your Escape
We are proud to announce that we will be launching Quick Escapes in cities around the UK. In association with Ordnance Survey ‘Plot Your Escape’ invites and enables people to share their favourite city hikes. The very best hikes will be selected by our team and featured in our new Quick Escape series. We will also be rewarding each winner with a ‘Vespucci Escape Pack’.
What is a Quick Escape?
Quick Escapes are free, short, spontaneous city hikes that get you into nature, fast. So you can slow down. Here is a little more about exactly what a Quick Escape should look like:
✔︎ City to Nature – Quick Escapes are either within the city or just outside.
✔︎ Accessible – The start and finish of the hike must be accessible by public transport.
✔︎ Easy to Follow – We like our Quick Escapes to use national footpaths and trails. We use the OS Maps App to help navigate people around the route.
✔︎ How Long? – Our Quick Escapes can range from 30 mins to a whole afternoon.
✔︎ Points of Interest – We like our hikes to have interesting things to see / do along the way. Pubs, cafés, quirky facts or even a spot for a little wild swim…

🔈A note from Alex our CEO
“We are all dreaming of the great outdoors right now, and I feel plotting your favourite escape is a great way to bring the outdoors in. I’m really excited to see the great new hikes that come out of this.
Stay home, follow the government’s advice and do your bit to protect the amazing work our NHS is doing.”
