Dartmouth Harbour

South West Coast Path - Plymouth to Brixham

Walk between Plymouth and Brixham in Devon along the South West Coast Path. 

Take in exposed headlands and coves, golden beaches, stunning harbours and fishing ports, enjoying seven days of spectacular and sometimes challenging cliff top and trail walking.

Start in Plymouth, a town rich in Britain's maritime heritage and then follow pretty coastal trails, climbing high cliff tops and walking through wooded river valleys. The scenery along this section of the coast is unspoiled and varied. You can experience rich wildlife and fauna, such as dolphins, occasional whales and seals, several native bird species, and wildflowers in the spring.
