St Oswald's Way Walking Holiday
The St Oswald’s Way is a 97-mile walk through some of the finest landscapes in Northumberland. It links important historical landmarks associated with the 7th century King of Northumbria, who played a major part in bringing Christianity to his people. Hugging the rugged coastline, you head south from Holy Island (Lindisfarne), staying overnight in quaint seaside fishing villages. As you near the end of your journey, head inland across beautiful countryside and Hadrian's Wall Country to Heavenfield.
A good option for first-time long distance walkers, the St Oswald's Way allows you to discover the rich history and varied landscapes of this beautiful part of England.
You can walk the St Oswald's Way over six days, or if you prefer to take your time a little more then add in a stop in Seahouses (or a couple of nights if you would like to visit the nearby Farne Islands!), and do the walk over seven days. We also offer a "Best of" itinerary which can be done over a long weekend and covers the highlights of the coastal part of the walk.
