Livraison gratuite àpd €50 (en Belgique)
This challenging walk of 184 miles (296 km) crosses the north of England from St Bees on the Cumbria coast to Robin Hood’s Bay on the North Sea. It passes through three National Parks – the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors – with splendidly varied scenery. Many walkers complete it within 12 to 16 days, although some divide it into two separate week-long walks.
Devised by the legendary Alfred Wainwright, the Coast to Coast is justly famous as England's most popular walk. It is waymarked, has plenty of accommodation and features welcoming pubs. Both its ends and two midpoints (Kirkby Stephen and Richmond) are accessible by public transport.
The new edition features many photographs by the award-winning landscape photographer Karen Frenkel. It also has freshly commissioned mapping, which appears on 25 of its 126 pages. It covers many more route options than before, but it weighs only 270g/10 oz. It contains all that a walker needs:
