An 84-mile coast-to-coast route that follows the World Heritage site of Hadrian’s Wall, this walk – or trek – is one of the most popular routes in the UK. Appropriately, there are dozens of pubs and B&Bs on the way across several market towns, breaking the walk up into manageable sections. With the Northumberland National Park to your left and the North Pennines to your right, you’re in the middle of a gorgeous swell of countryside resplendent with forests, grasslands and a wonderfully open sky. There are plenty of tour operators who will guide you or even book the accommodation and ferry your bags to your next overnight stop, or you can go old school and take your tent and stove with you.
A 90-minute tour that takes in the celebrated and less-well-known aspects of Carlisle, the Secret City Walking Tour departs from the red post box in front of the Carlisle Tourist Information Centre. Held by Great Guided Tours, the easy walk takes place every Monday during July and August, taking you across the city’s secret spots including a detailed history of Carlisle, the great border city.
Take the easy option and ride in style across this stunning 72-mile-long stretch of countryside, or take things at a slightly slower pace and make the walk south from Carlisle to Settle following the railway track. Walks can be split into easy day trips or the full Yorkshire dales experience, with plenty of cafés, pubs and B&Bs on the route. And there are several companies who’ll help organise your route and guide you across, up the hills and down the dales. Equally, you can tackle the trail yourself armed either with a tent and supplies or using the handily placed accommodation on the way down.
