About

The iconic Coast to Coast walk in the UK passes through glorious English scenery in three of the country’s best National Parks; the Lake District National Park, Yorkshire Dales National Park and North York Moors National Park.

The walk was originally created and described by the famous English author Alfred Wainwright in his 1973 book ‘A Coast to Coast Walk’. The route has been adapted over time but the essence remains the same, a ramble that takes you from the Irish sea at St Bees in Cumbria across the Pennines and Moors to embrace the North Sea at Robin Hood’s Bay. En route you’ll walk through the best of northern England with countless small villages, majestic views and warm, welcoming pubs to break your journey. Like other long distance walks the Coast to Coast gives the opportunity for meeting fellow walkers from all over the world.
