Expert walker Julia Bradbury has spent years wandering Britain’s countryside discovering some of its most beautiful and spectacular landscapes. In this series, Julia chooses her favourite, most accessible family treks in search of the perfect walk with a view which anyone can do in a lovely morning or afternoon ramble. 
Episode 1 - Anglesey: The Coastal Walk
Heading out beside the Menai Straits overlooking Snowdonia, Julia’s costal walk uncovers the birth place of Land-Rover and ends on the romantic Llanddwyn Island, home of Wales’s own female St Valentine and a lighthouse cove with stunning sea views.
Teetering on the North Wales Coast, Julia traces the coastal waters of the Menai Straits, helping to save lobsters and meeting local mussel and oyster pickers, getting to taste them in a sunset beach picnic at the climax of her walk.
On route, Julia also seeks out the lost prototype of the first ever Land-rover which locals believe maybe buried in the Anglesey sand-dunes where its inventor first put it through trials almost 70 years ago. After a paddle in the sea, she discovers why Prince William and Kate have a soft spot for the romantic St Llanddwyn Island, home to the Welsh St Valentine in a setting so spectacular that it reminds Julia of New Zealand’s South Island.
