The Capital View Walk starts from the car park next to the bus terminus. The walk is well signed, with stunning views of the city - a real Capital View! The final part of the walk is within earshot of the motorway, but this is outweighed by a taste of historical Swanston village.
You can finish the walk with some refreshments at “The Steading" pub. A walk most notable for its views rather than tranquilty.
