Coast: The Walks: Over 50 Walks Inspired by the BBC Television Series

The book is laid out to make it both interesting reading and a useful guide. Fifty-four different walks on the coasts of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland are each described in detail both with maps and by landmarks, with advice on what to look at and where to stop along the way. Each walk is labeled either easy, medium or hard, there is advice on parking your car in a convenient place for each walk, and the distances are given. There are also helpful photographs so you can have a better idea of the landmarks you’re looking for. Plus, each walk includes details of the local tourist information office and their website, so you can get any additional information you need to plan your trip.
