  • Across England on Wainwright’s Walk
  • One of the World’s Great Walks
  • Walking from St Bees to Robin Hood’s Bay
  • English Lake District, Pennines and North York Moors
The trip "Coast To Coast Rambler - 18 Days" starts from St Bees and ends in Robin Hoods Bay. It is a walking tour that takes 18 days taking you through Danby Wiske, Egton Bridge, St Bees and 14 other destinations in England. "Coast To Coast Rambler - 18 Days" is a self-guided private trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

A comfortably paced self guided walk along the Coast to Coast trail across England. As a result of popular demand, for people with more time, or who want to break up some of the longer days of the original two week tour, we have given you the option to increase Wainwright’s masterpiece to 18 days! This is the quintessential English hill walking and long distance trail experience: 190 plus miles traversing three national parks and a lot of interesting landscapes, old towns and of course public houses in between! 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 head east, with the wind, into the Lake district to pass by some of its most famous lakes and cross some important passes, with options to extend days (with ascents of peaks such as Helvellyn). 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 around to the North Sea Coast to make a triumphant entrance into Robins Hoods 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 enroute, reflect something of the great diversity of England.

“I originally booked for the C2C in June 2019 to start in May 2020. Of course, then came along the pandemic and couldn't go. My original booking was for 2 people, then another 3 decided to join us. So my booking was changed. Then later on 3 decided to cancel their holiday.The reason I'm telling this is because Sherpa Expeditions (now Walkers Britain) couldn't be more helpful, especially Trina who dealt with my booking and Tali who dealt with the refunds. As for the tour itself, everything went according to plan. Lovely clean B&Bs and had no problem with the luggage transfer. Gained a lot of knowledge from the information that was sent to me, especially the Trailblazer C2C book which was easy to follow supported by maps. I will certainly consider booking with Walkers Britain again.”

“We walked Coast to Coast across Britain and used UTracks for the organisation of the itinerary which included all accommodation, organisation of our bags to be transported to each destination and our maps. We also had written instructions for routes which were very useful.”

“It's a fantastic walk and also something of an extended pub crawl. Sherpa did a great job of sorting out accommodation and luggage for us.Everything went smoothly and we will be considering another trip with Sherpa next year.”
