Tours that we offer for when you get to the coast

(Holyhead to) Hope:Hope (to Hull)

This is a relatively demanding three day coast to coast. It can obviously be tailored to take a bit longer with more opportunity to see some of the fantastic heritage sites and countryside across North Wales, Cheshire, Peak District, and Yorkshire

Red Lion Pickmere
Bird in Hand Mobberley

Chapel en le Frith: a small town with so many fine refreshment opportunities that it might justify being a destination in its own right: we like in particular Shoulder of Mutton and the Old Cell


George and Dragon Wentworth
Ironstone Wharf Gunness (seriously? tho’ Rob P might not agree!)
Hope and Anchor Barton on Humber

FFin’ ABC (Fishguard to Felixstowe via Abergavenny Banbury Cambridge)

This is a pretty tough four day coast to coast. Not for the faint hearted but it can be adjusted to take a bit longer if you prefer. The classic route features over 160km (100 miles) and over 1600m elevation gain on the first day (but it is [a bit] easier after that)
