Six autumn walks around the English Riviera

There are plenty of places for a refreshing autumn walk. With spots to crunch through leaves in woodland or breathing in bracing sea air whilst strolling along the coast. Here are some of our favourite places to walk as rusty golds, reds and oranges take over the countryside.

You can find weathered orthostats at Prawle Point

This walk is full of drama: heart thumping cliff-top climbs, with rocky raised beaches below. Look out for the sunken Demetrios below Signalhouse Point and don't miss the ancient boundary stones that dot the landscape. Call in at the Coastwatch visitor centre to find out more about this wild and beautiful landscape.
