Hadrian's Wall

Hadrian's Wall

from 4 nights @ £360 to 10 nights @ £845

The 84 mile long Hadrian's Wall Path became the 15th official National Trail of England in 2003. It is normally walked from east to west from Wallsend to the Solway, but we are happy to arrange your self-guided walk in either direction. Along the way you cross the Pennines following the escarpment of the Great Whin Sil and pass many relics of the Roman Empire including forts, milecastles and the Wall itself. We have various options to walk the full length of the Wall to suit everyone, from 5 to 10 nights. We also have 'Best of the Wall' options walking the most spectacular and most historically interesting central section from 3 to 5 days.

Robin Hoods Bay at the end of the Coast to Coast path

Coast to Coast

from 6 nights @ £540 to 18 nights @ £1500

This is Wainwright's classic Coast-to-Coast walk from St Bees on the Irish Sea coast to Robin Hoods Bay on the North Sea coast. In the course of this 190 mile walk across England you pass through the varied scenery of the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors. The sensational finale is a bracing cliff-top walk into the charming fishing village of Robin Hoods Bay. We offer several options for walking the entire C2C route from 12 to 17 days, or you can choose to complete it in two parts from 5 days to 9 days each.

Dales Way

from 6 nights @ £565 to 9 nights @ £840

The Dales Way is a delightful 78 mile walk through the Yorkshire Dales from the moors of Ilkley through the limestone country of Wharfedale and Dentdale and into south Lakeland to finish at the charming town of Bowness on Windermere. The Dales Way mostly follows river valleys and is therefore less strenuous than trails such as the Pennine Way or Coast to Coast. It is therefore a good trail to choose if you want an introduction to Long Distance Path (LDP) walking. You can book this walk as 7,8 or 9 night options, including accommodation and luggage transfer, mapss, guidebook, personalised trip notes and our emergency number.

Ingleborough on the Dales High Way

Dales High Way

from 7 nights @ £675 to 10 nights @ £945

The Dales High Way is a challenging 90 mile high level route from Saltaire near Shipley to Appleby in Cumbria. During its course you will cross wild moorland and the limestone dales of Malham, climb Ingleborough of Yorkshire 'Three Peaks' fame, traverse the heart of the remote Howgill Fells, and end your journey along the pretty banks of the River Eden. Longer, higher, wilder, and more challenging than the Dales Way, this is a Long Distance Path for aficionados of LDP walking. We have fixed price, easy-to-book versions of the Dales High Way including 7, 8, 9 and 10 night options.

On the Cumbria Way in the Lake District

Cumbria Way

from 2 days/3 nights @ £310 to 8 days/9 nights @ £895

Possibly England's best kept secret. Not yet an 'official' LDP but this can only be a matter of time. Offering a variety of spectacular scenery, the 73 mile Cumbria Way will take you from the market town of Ulverston overlooking Morecambe Bay, right through the heart of the Lake District, to Carlisle close to the Solway Firth. You can choose to split the walk into 5 - 8 stages, including options to climb the 'Old Man of Coniston' and Skiddaw, or choose one of our 'highlights' tours of 2 - 3 days.
