The Somerset Coast of surprises
The England Coast Path in Somerset stretches 60 miles from Brean to Minehead. After crossing the River Axe it takes you to Brean Down, after which it passes the sandy beaches of Berrow and Burnham-on-Sea, the Victorian docks of Bridgwater and the marshes and nature reserves at Steart Point. Once past Hinkley Point, the beach and cliff formations from Lilstock to Blue Anchor are classified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) offering an outstanding series of sections through our geological history. Taking in the seafaring town of Watchet on the way, the route shadows the West Somerset Steam Railway through Blue Anchor and Dunster to end in Minehead, the gateway to Exmoor, where the route joins the South West Coast Path to follow the Exmoor coast for astonishing panoramic views towards Porlock.
