The England Coast Path is a new long distance path around the whole coast of England. At over 2,700 miles, it will be the longest completed coastal path in the world and provides an important opportunity for exploring the peripheral landscape of this maritime country.
This is the second in a series of four guidebooks, providing the most thorough information for walking the entire route. It covers over 650 miles around the south west of England from the River Exe at Exmouth to the River Severn at the Severn Bridge. Tracing the coastlines of Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Avon, this spectacular route takes in some of the finest cliff scenery in the world, as well as verdant river estuaries, expansive beaches and a beautiful collection of resorts and harbours.
While the whole route has yet to be fully opened, the south west coast section is almost entirely accessible and this book provides alternatives to those few stretches that are not. There is information on public transport, parking, accommodation, campsites, refreshments, and local history, as well as a song for each section of the route. Whether you’re walking the route in small sections or all in one go, this is the perfect companion to the England Coast Path.
