Since having our second child we have been re-discovering buggy friendly walks in Berkshire. They have been great to explore. It’s worth noting we walk with an off-road buggy and have only tested the below walks with this type of buggy. If you click the links below, they will each take you to a blog post, which has been written about each walk, providing pictures and more information and Berkshire Mummies experience of each walk.
