870-mile Wales Coast Path

The Wales Coast Path (WelshLlwybr Arfordir Cymru) is a long-distance footpathwhich follows, or runs close to, the majority of the coastline of Wales.

It opened on 5 May 2012, and offers a 870-mile (1,400 km) walking route from ChepstowMonmouthshire, in the south to near Chester, in the north. …

The idea was developed from a desire to build on the economic success of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path. …

The whole path is accessible to walkers and, where practical, some sections are suitable for cyclists, families with pushchairs, people with restricted mobility, and horse riders. …

The Wales Coast Path is not a National Trail …

You can continue on Offa’s Dyke Path if you want to make a circuit. Guidebook author Paddy Dillon did just that while writing the book.
