Walk Options

It is worth extending the walk, as just to the north of Walton is the Naze - a peninsula. It is a prominent site for migrating birds and has a small nature reserve. See SWC Walk 98 - Walton-on-the-Naze Circular. This makes a 21.5 km (13.4 mile) walk.


Take the train nearest to 10.15am (before or after) from Liverpool Street.


Various cafés en-route prior to leaving Holland-on-Sea.

Oakwood Inn, Frinton Rd, Holland-on-Sea, CO15 5UT, (tel 01255 812209) Located 4km from the start of the walk. This is the alternative pub lunch stop. (Deter inland from coastal route.)
