Coast to Coast Path: St Bees to Robin Hood's Bay
Sample Route Walk Profile

Coast to Coast Path: St Bees to Robin Hood's Bay

Around two-thirds of the walk is spent in the national parks of the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors. These parks encompass the most dramatic upland scenery in England, from its highest fells to its largest lakes, some of its most beautiful woods and parts of its bleakest, barest moors. The walk also passes through areas alive with some of Britain’s rarest wildlife, including red squirrels and otters, and even skirts around the eyrie of England’s last surviving golden eagle.

NEW for the 10th edition:

  • Completely rewalked and all information rechecked


  • The largest scale walking maps available  – at just under 1:20,000 – our maps are bigger than even the most detailed walking maps currently available elsewhere
  • Unique mapping features - in many walking guides the reader has to read a route description then try to relate it to the map. Our guides are easier to use because walking directions, tricky junctions, places to stay and eat, points of interest and walking times are all written onto the maps themselves in the places to which they apply.
  • Downloadable GPS waypoints also included.
  • Itineraries for all walkers – whether walking the route in its entirety over two weeks or sampling the highlights on daywalks and short breaks
  • All-in-one-guide – reviews of places to stay (campsites, hostels, B&Bs, pubs and hotels), places to eat, attractions along the way
  • Comprehensive public transport information for weekend and day walks– all access points on the path
  • Henry Stedman is the author of bestselling Trailblazer guides to Kilimanjaro and Hadrian’s Wall Path
