The walk up Paradise Drive, pass the Lyford Stone Tower, and on to Mar East and Lyford Cove, will be dotted with costumed characters from the early 1900s and feature the historic home “The Castle.” Walkers will enter the homes and gardens of historic houses along the walk, enjoying astounding views along the way.
The self-guided walk begins and ends at the Ferry Plaza, where participants can enjoy gourmet coffee and healthy treats in the morning, and then enjoy delicious BBQ lunches at noon while listening to music and taking in the views.
