Description

The South West Coast Path is the spectacular 630-mile (1008-km) National Trail around the tip of Britain.

This volume features the section of the Path from Minehead to Padstow, a distance of 163 miles (262 km). It skirts the Exmoor National Park, taking in the precipitous harbour towns of Lynton, Lynmouth and Ilfracombe, before heading south-west into Cornwall along the surfers' coast via Westword Ho! and Arthurian Tintagel, to reach  the gastronomic mecca of Padstow. Along the way there is the coastal path around Lundy Island, with its puffins, and other arresting wildlife from shearwaters to basking sharks.

THis guide has been fully revised and updated for 2013, and completely resdesigned to feature many more colour photographs and much more information on local history, cultural associations and wildlife. It is not so much a walking guide as a complete companion to the landscape of the Path, whether you are a dedicated long-distance walker or a weekend stroller. 

National Trail Guides are the official guidebooks to the fifteen National Trails in England and Wales and are published in association with Natural England, the official body charged with developing and maintaining the Trails.
