About the book
Accompanying BBC2's BAFTA award-winning television series, Coast: The Walks will inspire you to explore the best that the coastline of the British Isles has to offer. With more than 50 fantastic walks around Great Britain and Ireland, this practical guidebook features a variety of town and rural routes that are designed to suit both experienced walkers and those who fancy nothing more taxing than an afternoon stroll.
Whether you crave the rugged beauty of Antrim and Skye, the seaside fun of Brighton and Great Yarmouth, the majestic cliffs of the Cornish and Pembrokeshire peninsulas, or the history of our great coastal cities, such as Aberdeen, Belfast, Dublin, Hull, Liverpool and Plymouth, Coast: The Walks includes all these places, and many more besides.
As well as offering invaluable advice that will enable you to plan your day out, and tried-and-tested instructions to guide you on your way, the book helpfully highlights points of interest along the route: historic sites and buildings, topographical features, and wildlife to watch out for as you go - each illustrated with a colour photograph.
Equally at home in the car or on the bookshelf, Coast: The Walks will encourage you to get out there and make the most of our wonderfully diverse and endlessly fascinating 10,000 miles of coastline.
