Treks, walks, trails, hikes and strolls

There’s no better way to explore the area than on foot. With numerous, well-marked foot paths and bridleways, walking in Bude is a delight. There is always something interesting to spot and with so many routes on offer, you never need walk the same path twice during your stay.

Nothing allows you to relax and soak up the views better than a good walk. Whether it’s just a few steps after lunch or day long hike, there are routes for all tastes and abilities. The town itself has the pretty Bude Canal to roam, with a route down to the abundant wildlife of Bude Marshes. North of the town, a stroll over Summerleaze Down is an enjoyable way to reach the skate park, pitch and putt or Crooklets Beach.

For a huge range of maps and further information on local walks, Bude Tourist Information Centre has stacks of great resources. We have a wealth of inexpensive and easy to follow leaflets, guidebooks and maps available.  They are also available to buy from our online shop.
