Start in St Bees and end in Robin Hood's Bay, the trip Coast To Coast Classic Guided Walk is a guided walking tour that takes 15 days. You will travel through Blakey, Osmotherley, Ennerdale Bridge and 11 other destinations in England. Coast To Coast Classic Guided Walk is a small group trip which includes accommodation, meals and others.

Follow in Wainwright's footsteps on a guided walk along England's famous Coast to Coast trail. The Coast to Coast represents English hill walking and a long distance trail experience at its best: approx 315 km / 195 miles traversing three national parks with lots of interesting landscapes, varying terrain and old towns. It is amazing to think that this most famous of routes, totally eclipsing the Pennine Way in terms of popularity and variety, is still not classified as a National Trail. Starting at the tiny Cumbrian seaside resort of St. Bees on the Irish Sea we climb steeply heading east into the Lake district to pass by some of its most famous lakes and passes. Then it is on into the Yorkshire Dales and over the mystical Nine Standards Rig, before following the beautiful River Swale for a couple of days into the old market town of Richmond. There follows a marathon section to link up with the North York Moors National Park from where we roller coaster up and down around to the North Sea Coast to make a triumphant entrance into Robins Hood's Bay where a celebratory pint, bottle of Champagne or ice cream whilst standing in the sea is in order. Along the way you will be amazed at the variety of the dry stone walls, the charming little villages and just how much that you get to eat for a full English cooked breakfast! There are cozy small hotels, guesthouses and pubs to stay at on this tour and these, as well as the rich variety of the people that you meet en route, reflect something of the great diversity of England.
