Watch: England's Famous Coast to Coast Trail

See Real Traveller Experiences of the Surprisingly Beautiful British Walking Trail 

The Coast to Coast is one of England’s premier trails that takes walkers from the west coast to the east coast of England. It was established in 1973 by Alfred Wainwright and is often referred to as ‘Wainwright’s Way'.
Starting from the seaside resort town of St Bees on the Irish Sea coast, the trail covers some 315km (195 miles) across three national parks before arriving in Robin Hood's Bay on the North Sea coast. 

Because of the popularity of this trail, people often fall into the trap of thinking that the Coast to Coast is easy. However, our trips on the Coast to Coast trail are amongst our most challenging but rewarding tours in Europe. 

We have 11 exciting ways for you to experience the Coast to Coast. There are guided small group trips, relaxed pace ramblers, cycling trips and self guided trips departing daily in season. There really is a Coast to Coast experience for everyone.

Watch our new video on the Coast to Coast trail and be inspired by the remarkable scenery, rugged terrain, charming English hospitality and camaraderie of the UTracks travellers. Then discover which trip is most suitable for you to experience the Coast to Coast.

Just watched the video ... AMAZING!!! I'm all in, now I just have to convince my wife she can do it and enjoy the experience. We are both experienced hikers and cyclists, but have never done a long distance walk like the Coast-to-Coast.

I think if you simply show her the video she will be convinced to walk the Coast to Coast! It's one of our most popular hikes for a reason. We also have several variations on the trip, e.g. if you want to walk half of it, at a slower pace, join a group tour or walk self guided. The choice is yours! When you're ready to start planning do get in touch with our helpful team.
