Loved walking Marginal Way. A bit crowded but all in all a nice way to spend a morning. A short distance and mostly level ground.

We have been coming here for years and always have a wonderful time! Great views, dog friendly and each end has great shops and restaurants. Great for a solo walk, family walk or couples as well!
