Viking Coastal Trail

32 miles (51.4 km)

This signed circular route takes you on a tour of some of Kent's most beautiful coastline and interesting seaside towns. The route begins at Birchington and visits Margate, Broadstairs, Ramsgate, Minster and Reculver. Most of the route takes place on traffic free paths many of which run directly along the coastline.
Route highlights include two splendid coastal country parks. First is the delightful Pegwell Bay Country Park with splendid views over Pegwell Bay and Sandwich Bay. Next is Reculver Country Park, which has magnificent cliff top views over Herne Bay and a wide variety of wildlife and plantlife to see. Other highlights include the beautiful Botany Bay, Broadstairs beach and the impressive Ramsgate harbour.
