This large-format guidebook presents 30 of the most accessible and varied stretches from around the England Coast Path, England's longest National Trail and the worlds longest coastal path.

Walkable all year round, the routes have been purposefully chosen near to public transport links.
Incorporating stunning photography of Britain's coastline, the guide will encourage a wide audience to explore both well-loved and less well-known areas of shoreline, from sandy and shingle beaches to striking cliff coast. Fascinating snippets of history and geology are interspersed throughout, and the appendices contain useful websites and further reading.

Included alongside each walk are comprehensive listings of public transport, toilets and places to eat and drink, which highlight the excellent walking infrastructure and make each walk more accessible.
