Explore the South West Coast Path National Trail

About us

The South West Coast Path is the longest of England’s National Trails and connects you to the waterfront via a coastal walkway across the National Marine Park.

This walk takes you from the Cremyll Ferry in Stonehouse to explore the historic Royal William Yard with shops and cafés, along Plymouth’s Hoe and Barbican areas, through its industrial waterfront areas to the Mount Batten peninsular with its plethora of watersports activities, historic breakwater and tower and views back across Plymouth Sound. Take the Mount Batten ferry back to the barbican.

Download the walk and make a donation to help the South West Coast Path Association look after the longest of England’s National Trails which connects you with 630 miles of coastal walking across the South West, including the National Marine Park.
