About

The South West Coast Path is the UK’s longest National Trail, at a blister-inducing 630 miles. It runs from Minehead in Somerset along the north coast to Penzance in Cornwall, and all the way up the South Coast to Poole Harbour, Dorset.

The path also stretches along the entire length of the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay and a designated UNESCO Global Geopark, where you’ll find 22 miles of coastal path through some stunning Geopark scenery.

A popular route is the 2.5 miles from Torquay Harbour to Daddyhole Plain. The walk passes a number of landmarks including Beacon Cove where Agatha Christie used to swim as a girl, and the naturally-sculpted cliff arch known as ‘London Bridge’. Finally, after a climb to 200ft above sea level you’ll reach Daddyhole Plain, a wonderful vantage point allowing you to gaze across the town and out to sea.

If you’re looking for a more strenuous hike, why not try the more challenging route from Churston to Broadsands? A peaceful path passing through country lanes, patches of woodland and secluded coves, this is a rewarding walk that showcases the South Devon countryside at its best.

A new book, “Walks Along the South West Coast Path - Exmouth to Dartmouth", is available to purchase from Visitor Information Centres and online at Amazon.
