Coast to Coast
Looking for Coast to Coast books, maps or gifts?
One of the most well-known long distance walks, the Coast to Coast was originally described by Alfred Wainwright in his 1973 book A Coast to Coast Walk.
The route passes through three contrasting national parks: the Lake District National Park, the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and the North York Moors National Park.
Wainwright recommends that walkers dip their booted feet in the Irish Sea at St Bees and, at the end of the walk, in the North Sea at Robin Hood's Bay!
