Celebrating Great Britain's Coast
No matter where we live, there's a stretch of the British coast that is close to our heart. The Ramblers have long fought for our right to a walk all around our island.
This summer, join our Coast Path Countdown as we work with our friends at Natural England to connect all sections of the England Coast Path to create routes right around Great Britain.
Help open more places for everyone to walk
Mile by mile, Ramblers volunteers, campaigners and partners are helping open the England coast path this summer and beyond.
Opening the way for everyone to walk is a huge community effort. It takes all of us to help make it happen.
