Coast to Coast Hike England

Coast to Coast

  • Hike across the whole of England from the Irish Sea to the North Sea
  • Experience dramatic mountains, rolling green valleys and heather-clad moors
  • Recharge in charming English villages like Grasmere and Patterdale
  • Follow the ancient paths which inspired Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter
  • Become part of the ‘coast to coast’ comradery as you complete a favorite route of the Brits
  • Have afternoon tea with jam and scones, a pint in the pub and fish & chips on the beach

Spanning across the entirety of Northern England, this 200 mile Coast to Coast hiking trail is a journey through three of England’s most beautiful and rugged National Parks.

As the trail winds its way over the Lake District National Park mountains and into the Yorkshire Dales National Park, opportunities are endless to experience historical landmarks or traditional pubs with local ale. Revel in ancient farming practices as you pass mile upon mile of sheep pastures and hand build dry stone walls. Harking back to classical nineteenth century novelists Bronte and Jane Austin, the trail rambles over the moody North York Moors and descents into the charming coastal town of Robin Hoods Bay.

In 1973, Alfred Wainwright laid the foundations of the route, and today, Macs has expert first-hand knowledge to send you on his path.

Our most popular route is the 18 day complete trail, while shorter tours are also available for folks who just want a taste of the of the C2C or want to do one half of the route. Whichever route you choose your hiking vacation will be packed full of beautiful countryside and historic sites.

  • Wainwright's Coast to Coast

    ‘Surely there cannot be a finer itinerary for a long-distance walk! … The countryside traversed is beautiful almost everywhere, yet extremely varied in character, with mountains and hills, valleys and rivers, heather moors and sea-cliffs combining in a pageant of colourful scenery.’ A Coast to Coast Walk, 1973

    Wainwright’s first visit to the Lake District in 1930 took him to the summit of Orrest Head, about which he said ‘those few hours cast a spell which changed my life'. 

    Since he made it famous, thousands have hiked this route in search of Wainwright’s legend as they follow his pictorial guides to the Lakeland Fells.
