Whether walking the beaches St Ives in Cornwall, the wilds of Dartmoor in Devon, the Jurassic Coast of Dorset or the iconic White Cliffs of Dover in Kent – there is a hiking vacation for everyone! Both our guided and self-guided walking tours will immerse you in the best of England’s coast and countryside, where you can hike at your own pace, leading you away from the crowds and back to nature.
We have created a magical mix of the best walking trails throughout the South of England, from the Southwest Coast Path national trail to the Pilgrims Way to Canterbury Cathedral, maximising your time in the fresh air and with the wind in your hair. Join a group, walk with friends, family, or as a couple on a wonderful walking tour of South Coast of the UK.
Explore the highlights of our incredible 630 miles of unbroken South West Coast Path, through Devon, Cornwall and Dorset, along beaches, over cliffs, crossing to incredible islands and staying in gorgeous seaside towns and villages. Be enchanted by the stories and history revealed within some of the finest coastal landscapes and views in the world, from smugglers’ coves and 19th century coast guard patrol routes, to Poldark locations, old tin mines and the Pirates of Penzance.
