South West Coast Path Walks

South West Coast Path

The South West Coast Path is one of the UK’s greatest and most famous walks; 630 miles in total, running from Somerset around Devon, Cornwall and finally into Dorset and through West Bay ending at Poole Harbour.

West Bay Discovery Centre is proud to be one of the South West Coast Path Way Makers, which allows walkers not only to follow the trail, but highlights great places to stop along the way, adding to those great memories of walking along this famous path.

South West Coast Path have recently introduced a Coast Path Passport allowing walkers to collect ‘stamps’ along the way reflecting the unique nature of each stretch of the Trail, the Passport will create a lasting memory to treasure. We are delighted to have been chosen as one of the stamping points along the Jurassic Coast. For more information about the South West Coast Path Passport and to buy your own passport visit https://www.southwestcoastpath.org.uk/passport/
