From the American War of Independence via two World Wars to the Cold War and beyond, the Solway has witnessed it all.
The Solway Military Trail is designed to take you on a journey of discovery through the beautiful Solway coast area. Each trail has a different character and landscape, and showcases the best of the military history the area has to offer, including some really fascinating museums.
Each trail has been designed to take around half a day by car, as we want you to explore each area as you travel through. From stunning beaches to market towns, rolling hills to beautiful villages, the whole area has so much to share.
