the classic guide

A guide to the West Country from the people that know…

Golden Cap

The Ramblers hail Golden Cap as one of their 'Top 50 walking routes to Britain’s best views'. At 191 metres, it's the highest sea cliff in Southern England. Walk through Langdon wood (great in April/May for bluebells) and up to the top for jaw-dropping views of Charmouth and down to Lyme Regis. The stretch of coast between Lyme Regis and Bridport has over 25 miles of paths and traces almost 185 million years of the Earth's history, so there's plenty of exploring to be done here.

The view

A must for the views either side, leave to a clear sunny day though.

Stunning Views

I love this place, the breathtaking views down across the coast are amazing, it is worth taking a picnic, take your time and enjoy the view. I followed this walk http://www.classic.co.uk/nas/classic-blog/guest-experience-a-cheat%E2%80%99s-walk-to-golden-cap-155.html

Misty & no View

We set out to walk but unfortunately when we go to the top of the hill it was very misty and no views to be had which was disappointing so sorry for low rating. Also we found some of the footpaths were nothing more than mud baths with no way to get around other than to cling on to fern stems while balancing on tufts of none muddy grass.
