Cornwall and Devon Walks with Julia Bradbury

Series overview

"The best way to see the true landscape of Cornwall and Devon is on foot. I’ll be going to the places only your walking boots can take you, from the rugged rocks of Dartmoor to the drama of the North Atlantic coast. And en route, I’ll be seeking out the counties' most unforgettable views, sampling some of the region’s most famous fare, and meeting the people that make Cornwall and Devon so unique. So walk with me, it’s going to be an adventure you never forget." - Julia Bradbury

This new eight-part series for ITV features Julia Bradbury taking us to parts of the West Country that can only be explored on foot - from the epic wilderness of Dartmoor, to the white sands and azure seas of the Atlantic coastline, to the soaring cliffs of Land's End.

From beautiful beaches to ancient woodlands and winding estuaries, this uplifting new series harnesses the country’s love of the outdoors and the best walks the south west has to offer.

Cornwall and Devon are home to thousands of miles of the country's most varied terrain and walking routes, and along the way Julia meets the people who live and work in these two counties as well as sampling some of its legendary fare. 

During the series, she visits Salcombe, Dartmoor, the Dart Valley, Isles of Scilly, Land’s End, Helford, The Lizard and Padstow.

 This is a Twofour production for ITV

Episode 7: The Dart Valley - Totnes to Dartmouth

This time, Julia takes a scenic river walk through the dramatic Dart Valley in Devon, travelling 13 miles along the banks of the River Dart from historic Totnes to bustling Dartmouth, where houses nestled in the hills overlook the town's picturesque harbour. 

Along the way, Julia drops into a shoemaker to see bespoke boots being put together, learns about rewilding at the Sharpham Estate where she helps harvest Pinot Noir grapes, and takes a look inside Greenway, the secluded home of Agatha Christie.

To finish it off, she tucks into fish and chips with seafood expert Mitch Tonks in Dartmouth.
