The South West Coast Path National Trail is rated as one of the top walks to be found anywhere in the world by Lonely Planet and voted Britain’s best walking route by the readers of Walk magazine.

Whether you’re looking for an afternoon stroll to take you to a beauty spot, or to embark on the challenge of hiking the entire route from Somerset's Minehead on the edge of Exmoor around to the shores of Poole Harbour in Dorset, or something in between, you’ve come to the right place. On this website you’ll find all the information you need to plan your trip.

How to use the map

To find walks, use the map controls to move the map and zoom into the area you are interested in. As you zoom into a section of coastline, walks and the other items shown on the key, will appear on the map. Clicking on any of the symbols will bring up more details about that walk or feature.

If the map is becoming too cluttered, you can hide features by un-ticking the box beside it in the key. If the box is greyed out, it means that feature is hidden unless you zoom in closer.
