North Wales Coast guidebook now available

The North Wales Coast guide covers the 80mile/125 stretch of the path from the outskirts of the historic city of Chester to the university city of Bangor.

It is one of the most accessible sections of the Wales Coast Path with long stretches of flat promenade with plenty of seating with good public transport links.  It’s no wonder it’s ideal for the less active visitor, wheelchair users and families with buggies.  This handy sized OS guide begins at the Welsh border on the River Dee where thousands of wildfowl and waders make it their home. 

The superb maps and well written text will guide you through what the North Wales Coast has to offer. 

From formidable castles at Flintshire and Conwy built by Edward I to the many Victorian seaside resorts like Llandudno and Conwy, bringing lots of stop and refuel opportunities, this guide will make sure you don’t miss a thing. 

The iconic limestone headland, the Great Orme (from the Old Norse words ‘urm’ or ‘orm’ meaning sea serpent) will be pretty difficult to miss and at the top, you will be treated with great views of Irish Sea, the North Wales coast road and the Isle of Anglesey in the distance.

From the Great Orme, the peaceful path stays close to the water’s edge with superb views of the Menai Straits ending up in the university town of Bangor, ready for your next adventure!
