    This Official Guide to the Llŷn Peninsula section of the Wales Coast Path contains everything local and long-distance walkers need. The Llŷn offers some of the finest coastal walking in North Wales. Its distinctive landscape is characterised by traditional farms, compact villages and volcanic hills encircled by the ever-present sea. Along the way, you'll pass Iron Age hillforts, pilgrims' churches, medieval castles, a hidden valley, a pub on the beach, tiny coves, sandy bays and Bardsey island balanced at the tip of this ancient 'Land's End of Wales'. Keep an eye out, too, for seabirds, wild goats, choughs, seals, dolphins, wildflowers and butterflies. The Llŷn coast path really is a walkers' paradise.

  • Official Guide to the Snowdonia & ceredigion section of the Wales Coast Path
    One of seven Official Guides to the Wales Coast Path The Snowdonia & Ceredigion coast offers a tremendous variety of landscape to those who walk its entire 132 miles/213 kilometres: from high, airy cliff-tops to secluded coves; from estuarine salt marshes to beaches backed by tremendous dune system that stretch on for miles. And with that diversity comes a huge range of wildlife, including seabirds, choughs, dolphins and rare wildflowers. The history too changes with every twist and turn of this fascinating route: visitors should always be prepared for the unexpected in a region that contains the ruins of once mighty castles and has links with characters as disparate as King Arthur and members of the rock band Led Zeppelin.
