7. Whitehaven, Cumbria
This coast is one of Cumbria’s best. The walk along this coast takes in Haig, Candlestick, and Birkham’s quarry, as well as the RSPB viewpoints. People who are interested in ornithology get to luxuriate in the only breeding colony of the black guillemots in all of England. If you want to walk along a coast that is steeped in wildlife and history, this is it.
