Description

The longest of Britain’s National Trails, the South West Coast Path follows the spectacular coastline for 630 miles around the southernmost tip of England from Somerset all the way to Dorset.This volume of the Official National Trail Guide, published in association with Walk Unlimited, features the second section of 169 miles (271 km), from Padstow in north Cornwall to Falmouth on the south coast.

From the surfing mecca of Newquay and St Ives’ s golden beaches it hugs the rugged clifftops round Land’ s End and the Lizard – as far west and south as it is possible to go in Britain – visiting serpentine harbours and craggy coves such as Cadgwith and Porthcurno with its dramatic open-air theatre. Besides truly wild sea-life like seals and fulmars, the Path offers the only chance anywhere in the country to see the delightful red-beaked chough.

Whether you're a holiday stroller or an experienced long-distance walker, this official guide contains everything you need to walk this well-loved path.
