With the opening of the Whitehaven to Silecroft coastal path this summer, there’s more coastline than ever to explore.
Cumbria’s coastal path is set to expand this summer and become part of the longest continuous coastal walking trail in the world. Explore the striking red sandstone cliffs of St Bees Head, enjoy a scenic ride on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway or discover ancient castles and historic ruins along this 32 mile stretch.
This will be Cumbria’s second contribution to England’s Coast Path, joining the popular 22 mile Whitehaven to Allonby trail. For keen long distance walkers, that’s a whole 54 miles of undisturbed coastline ready to be travelled. So whether it’s a romantic sunset stroll along the beach, some family fuelled fun in the sun or a solitary seaside run, there has never been a greater time to visit the Western Lake District.
