Starting from Torquay harbour, guests will follow the world famous South West Coast Path through one of its most picturesque sections, finishing at the Cary Arms for well-earned refreshments!

(The South West Coast Path stretches 620 miles from Minehead in Somerset, to Poole in Dorset and takes around 8 weeks to complete. It’s recognised as one of the finest walking routes in Britain, attracting over 9 million walkers per year. It rises and falls by 115,000 feet – the equivalent of walking up and down Everest twice! There are over 200 bridges and nearly 900 gates along the route)

During the tour, the guide will provide plenty of intriguing stories and impart his local knowledge along the way to keep guests entertained.
