Coast to Coast St Bees to Robin Hoods Bay

Coast to Coast St Bees to Robin Hoods Bay

by: Sandra Bardwell and Jacquetta Megarry
The Coast to Coast walk runs for 184 miles (296 km) through the finest scenery in northern England. Its end points, the lovely villages of St Bees and Robin Hood's Bay are both accessible by public transport. The whole walk takes most people from 12 to 16 days, and can readily be completed in two separate weeks.
