King Charles III England Coast Path
Connecting the finest coastal landscapes in England
To celebrate the coronation of His Majesty King Charles III, the England Coast Path has been renamed the ‘King Charles III England Coast Path’, leaving a lasting legacy to be enjoyed by walkers around the entire English coastline.
The King Charles III England Coast Path will be the longest managed coastal path in the world. It will go all the way around the coast of England and will be around 2,700 miles long when it is complete.
This amazing new National Trail will take people through some of the finest landscapes in England connecting the many coastal towns, cities and ports which have shaped this island nation. It will link iconic places and heritage on the coast with the less well-known and will unlock some parts of our coast for the first time.
The trail is opening in sections and to make information about the trail easier to find, it has been organised by area. On the area pages you can find out more and view the trail on the interactive map.
