870 incredible miles to enjoy, sampling incredible churches, along the Welsh coast
by Sarah Crossland, Church Tourism Manager
The Wales Coast Path is one of a few coastal footpaths in the world to follow a nation’s entire coastline.
While some rare souls may choose to walk the whole path, for the majority of us, the beauty is that you can simply walk whichever sections appeal. Dip in anywhere along its 870 miles and delight in jaw dropping views, contemporary cultural hotspots, unforgettable encounters with nature, and thousands of years of history.
The stunning coastal landscape of Wales has held allure for pilgrims, poets and travellers for millennia. Hundreds of ancient atmospheric Welsh churches are sited within a stones throw from, and even occasionally on, the beach, promontory or headland. Teetering on clifftops and sunk low on beaches, hidden deep in valleys and high up on soaring hilltops.
We've teamed up with the Wales Coast Path team to create 9 new trails, all visiting sacred places along the path.
