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

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 https://www.facebook.com/The-Old-Cell-Ale-Bar-1732390670419454/

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)
