Walk around the edge of England
Wow! Imagine walking on an unbroken coastal path all around England’s coast.
The England Coast Path is a new National Trail officially opened in 2020. Although many sections are open and well-used, others are still at various stages. But the aim is to complete it in 2021.
When finished, the coast path will stretch for almost 3,000 miles/5,000 kilometres and be one of the longest continuous walking routes in the world. Along the way, walkers can enjoy some stunning sections of coast: vast empty beaches, beetling cliffs, broad estuaries and saltmarshes teeming with wildlife.
What’s more, the England Coast Path now gives everyone the new right of open access to England’s shore down to the water’s edge.
