East Devon AONB is working in collaboration with the Sidmouth Walking Festival group to present a new Sidmouth and East Devon Walking Festival next year. The programme is looking good and there will be lots of varied walks on offer.
There will be 3 guided walks each day:
Complete the whole of the East Devon Way using our coach transport from Sidmouth
A circular walk off the East Devon Way, to include an expert such as foraging, how to read a map, coastal geology, wildlife, dog friendly, history, myths and legends & tree experts
a coastal walk at Sidmouth, Budleigh Salterton and Branscombe
By extending the dates and expanding the offer slightly walkers can explore further afield to discover our outstanding countryside and stay in the quieter month.
Tourism businesses step forward

Also we would like to offer the option of pubs, cafes and places to eat and discover - so this really is a chance for us all to work together to put the festival on the map.
The walking festival is planned in the same week as Outstanding Week
