Following on from stunning travel series The Greek Islands with Julia Bradbury, Twofour has been commissioned by ITV to produce a brand new 8 x 30’ series with Julia exploring Cornwall and Devon by foot.

Episode 1: Land’s End
In the first episode, Julia visits a stretch of coastline in west Cornwall known for its mythical landscapes and a special quality of light that is said to have inspired artists for centuries.
Episode 2: The North Atlantic Walk
In the second episode, Julia walks five miles of the stunning north Cornish coast, from popular picturesque Padstow to the surfing hotspot of Trevone Bay.
Episode 3: The Dartmoor Walk – Hay Tor to Saddle Tor
This week Julia is walking in Dartmoor National Park, one of the UK’s most inspirational landscapes and last great wildernesses. On a seven-mile circular walk from the iconic Hay Tor, Julia has a go at climbing its towering granite rocks. She also learns about the Dartmoor Pony, and discovers some of the myths and legends of the moor.
“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
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.
