Many websites and guide books provide variations of the route and itinerary of this walk, however, we are happy to share our version which we feel is a perfect way of walking from St Bees to Robin Hood’s Bay.

“Surely there cannot be a finer itinerary for a long-distance walk! For sustained beauty, variety and interest it puts the Pennine Way to shame.” A Coast to Coast Walk
