St Oswald's Way Walking Tours
The St Oswald’s Way is a fascinating, historical 97-mile walk through some of the finest landscapes in Northumberland. The walk hugs the coastline heading south from Holy Island before heading inland across beautiful countryside to Heavenfield. This walk will energise and enrich you with the fascinating history and wonderful landscapes of England’s northernmost county.
Starting your walking adventure in Holy Island you follow the stunning Northumberland Coastline from Bamburgh with its famous Castle, past small seaside villages down to the fishing village of Craster and on through Alnmouth to Warkworth. The walk then heads inland across the beautiful countryside to Rothbury and south to Heavenfield in Hadrian’s Wall Country. The walk links places associated with St Oswald, the King of Northumbria in the early 7th Century, who played a major part in bringing Christianity to his people.
