Walking Wainwright’s Coast to Coast August 2019

Wainwright’s Coast to Coast is regarded as one of the world’s top ten walks. Your 309 km walk will start at St Bees on the Irish Sea. The route will take you through the exquisite Lakes District, across the Pennines, and then over the Yorkshire Dales with their manicured fields, stone walls and whitewashed villages.  Finally you cross the rugged, heather-covered Yorkshire Moors before finishing at Robin Hood’s Bay on the North Sea. Accommodation is in small B & B’s or local pubs along the way.   Some days are over 25 km and some are challenging, so a high level of fitness will aid your enjoyment. You will be accompanied by an experienced walking guide along with tour manager John Matheson, who has led this walk several times. We have included three rest days at his suggestion.  This walk will give you a great sense of achievement.

John Matheson will be your tour manager on this tour.  John has worked in the travel industry for over 30 years, the majority of these as a director of Calder & Lawson.  He has led many overseas tours and has travelled extensively in Europe. He escorted the group on the Coast to Coast walk in 2015 and 2017, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. If you have any queries about the walk, give John a call.
