The Walk of a Lifetime
The South West Coast Path National Trail is one of the top walks to be found anywhere in the world.
Where else can you walk along 630 miles of such superb coastline? The heritage, wildlife, geology and scenery along the way are truly inspirational and every day walking it brings stunning new experiences.
Whether you are looking for an afternoon stroll to take you to a beauty spot, or to embark on the challenge of hiking their 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, and lots more beside.

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.
