In Spring 2020, one of the smallest nations in the world is opening the longest continuous coastal path in the world: the England Coast Path. This guidebook will cover the whole length.

The England Coast Path is a celebration of England's most precious asset: the wild coast. The opening of the England Coast Path means that anyone will be able to walk and wild camp along the entire 3,000-mile length of the English coast. As well as being a remarkable national achievement in itself, this new national trail is a hugely exciting prospect for all walkers, campers, fans of the coast and the outdoors.

In 2018 Stephen Neale became one of the first people to walk and wild camp along the whole of the path, and in doing so has written a fantastically detailed and rich guidebook covering the route itself, along with everything from the best places to swim, hunt for fossils and eat seafood to hidden away beaches and canoeing spots. The book is divided up into the 16 coastal counties and features 1,000 places to see, explore, camp and adventure around the coast. Each place has an OS map reference, basic directions to it from the path and a short description. Walkers can either visit specific places or link highlights together, walking between them along the path.
