A walk along the Welsh coast is an opportunity to take in fresh air, enjoy some gentle exercise and explore nature. Visitors will be surprised to know, however, that when they walk along the Wales Coast Path, they do sometimes tread the very same steps as some of Hollywood’s elite, from Halle Berry to Russell Crowe and Harry Potter to James Bond.
Join us as we travel from the north of Wales to the south on the 870-mile Wales Coast Path for a movie tour with a difference…
