This day to Plymouth is a varied day of woodland, clifftop and beach walking. The last couple of miles of the walk follow the waterfront walkway to Plymouth Hoe where your accommodation is booked for your final night.

The path passes behind Tregantle Fort, which was originally built to protect Plymouth from the sea, and then heads along the top of Long Sands beach. The view point at Rame Head is a highlight where the views are wonderful. 

From here head around and up to Cawsand and Kingsand Bay which are both great lunch stops. Woodland walking follows through Mount Edgecumbe County Park and then on to Cremyll where you take the ferry across to Plymouth.

Why not try some freshly caught seafood in one of the waterfront restaurants on the Barbican, or relax in the sunshine with a picnic on the Hoe. It’s also possible to take a behind-the -scenes tour of Devonport Dockyard. Each area of Plymouth has something special and unique to explore.
