The Sidmouth & East Devon Walking Festival 2019 takes place between Saturday, 21st and Friday, 27th September 2019. Join us for a fabulous week of free guided walks; discover the wonderful scenic coastal walking of Sidmouth and the hidden gems of East Devon.

There are three or four walks each day; shorter special interest expert-led walks, circular walks which take in our seaside towns and beautiful countryside, and the East Devon Way linear walks.

Five daily walks cover all of the 40 mile East Devon Way, walking from  Lyme Regis to Exmouth through East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. For these walks, there is coach (£6) transport from Sidmouth to take you to the start and collect you at the end.

For the hardy walker, there will be the opportunity to walk the new 13 mile Sid Valley Ring and 3 walks will follow the South West Coast Path from Exmouth to Lyme Regis. This dramatic section of the Jurassic coast rewards the hardy walker with fabulous views

The whole week is perfect for a walking and exploring holiday.

All walks are free of charge but limited and must be booked in advance through the Sidmouth Tourist Information 01395 516441.  Coach transfers are £6 payable in advance, payment details [email protected].

All walks are led by experienced local walkers who enjoy sharing this wonderful area with our guests.
