I met a guy walking from Dover to Lands End on the Bournemouth Sea front …………….



Was it just a map of the route laid out on the Prom ?

Rather be walking

I live in Suffolk and my husband’s done all of the Suffolk Coast path over 2 days. I’ve probably walked quite a bit of it over the years. It goes from Lowestoft to Felixstowe and yes it does go inland occasionally, mostly because you can’t cross the river! It goes through heathland and towns such as Southwold and Aldeburgh, plus Dunwich and Minsmere RSPB. I would think most of it is well walked.  There is a foot ferry from Bawdsey to Felixstowe ( I think it runs in the summer and you can prebook in the winter). South of there is the Stour and Orwell Walk, which you can use to walk around those 2 rivers, or you can get a foot ferry from Felixstowe to Harwich.  Going north from Lowestoft you have the Norfolk Coast path which I believe now starts just north of Lowestoft, so I guess there must be a link up.
