The Coast to Coast Walk has become the UK’s most iconic long-distance walking route, traversing some of the finest terrain England has to offer. The Coast to Coast hike takes you from the Irish Sea at St Bees to the North Sea at Robin Hood’s Bay, a distance of 192 miles (309 km). The walk takes you through 3 major national park areas – the famous Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the North York Moors , keeping to the higher ground where possible and avoiding the urban areas. There’s an option to walk the East or West sections separately if you’re pressed for time.
The varied landscapes that you encounter on this journey are truly epic, from windswept crags and fells of the Lake District to the upland tarns and waterfalls of the moors and dales and of course Sea cliffs at St Bees. The walk meanders from St Bees in Cumbria to Robin Hood’s Bay near Whitby, traversing the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors and all manner of peaty bogs, rock-strewn hills, rivers, quarries, meadows, trails, tracks, farms and derelict mines along the way.
Each day ends at a village with an overnight accommodation in a pub, a quaint Bed and Breakfast or in a character filled English lodge. However, your welcome will always be the same, warm, humorous and very Yorkshire. Not to mention the added delight of the camaraderie between walkers that’s infectious as you traverse the very beautiful Coast to Coast track.
