Overview

The Coast to Coast is an iconic long-distance walking route devised by the legendary British fell-walker and guidebook writer, Alfred Wainwright, in 1973. It traverses some of the finest ground in England as it 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 – with a preference for higher ground & the avoidance of urban areas where possible. Note that this is not an easy pub-to-pub walk, and will be more challenging than you might first anticipate (especially the first few days through the Lake District), but with a bit of preparation, the Coast to Coast walk is very achievable by most walkers. While it’s not the shortest way across northern England, nor the longest, it is most definitely one of the loveliest!
