This walking guidebook explores the Welsh Coast Path which, at 1408km, is the longest trail in Britain, as it traces the coastline from Chester to Chepstow. This guide divides the Path into 9 geographical areas and 57 stages, ranging between 15 to 32km in length. The names of Anglesey, the Llyn Peninsula, Cardigan Bay, Pembrokeshire, and the Gower conjour ideas of spectacular scenery, world-famous geology, seabirds and wildlife, all of which can be explored with this guide. Opened in 2012, the entire coast is now accessible and waymarked; a true adventure along some of the best coastline in the British Isles. Full of variety; from cities and castles to sandy beaches, tiny harbours to the crash of waves against rugged cliffs, the Path offers new sights at every point. Never straying far from the sea, or climbing higher than 300m, the Path can nevertheless offer strenuous walking as well as gentle rambles. Alongside detailed route descriptions and maps for each stage, the guidebook provides a range of practical information, whether you plan to walk the Path in full, or as a series of day-walks. Travel information, advice on accommodation and planning, as well as details on the history, wildlife and geology of the coast ensure that this is an ideal companion to uncovering the Welsh coast on foot.Reseña del editor:
This guidebook explores the full length of the 870-mile Wales Coast Path. A practical, pocket-sized guidebook, it describes the route in 57 daily stages from Chester to Chepstow, which can be adapted by walkers to suit their own abilities and preferred pace. From the northern coast, round Anglesey and the Ll?n Peninsular, before heading south to loop around Pembrokeshire before turning east, the coast path covers the entire Welsh coastline. It links historic castles, passes holiday resorts and traverses wild cliffs, and includes sections through the Snowdonia and Pembrokeshire National Parks, numerous AONBs and several areas of Heritage Coast. The guidebook notes where accommodation and food and drink can be found, as well as details of public transport, local museums and visitor centres. The walking is mostly easy, but can be occasionally rugged and feature the odd short, steep ascent and descent as well as some remote stretches.
