Beginning with your feet in the Irish Sea and ending with a dip (optional) in the North Sea, Wainwright's 190 mile Coast-to-Coast walk will take you through some of England's finest scenery as you traverse three National Parks and cross the Pennine spine of the country. This classic long distance path is simply an outstanding journey.
Level of Difficulty
The Coast to Coast actively seeks out the high ground and there is therefore, a fair amount of climbing top be done during its course. Probably the toughest section comes right at nthe start as you traverse the heart of the Lake District. Novice walkers would do well to cut their teeth on something like the Cumbria Way or Dales way before attempting the Coast to Coast but for those with some experience and a fortnight to spare there is no better walk.
We recommend doing the Coast-to-Coast over 14 walking days which will average around 13½ miles each day (with higher mileage for days spent mostly in valleys, and lower daily mileage in hilly country). However, we can also organise a trip over fewer or more days as you wish. Just contact us for a quote. You might also want to spit the walk over a couple of visits and we have two 7-day itineraries which tackle the Coast-to-Coast one half at a time.
