Stretching from Edale in Derbyshire to Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders, the Pennine Way National Trail winds through the length of Yorkshire and takes in some of Northern England’s most varied and breath taking landscapes. The first of the National Trails, it is one of England’s most famous long distance walks and at 268 miles in length, there’s plenty of it to enjoy.
From the Peak District, the trail heads north through the stunning Yorkshire Dales, across the North Pennines and over Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland to the Cheviots. It is considered the most challenging of the National Trails: you can expect a rugged and hilly walk, passing through some of the most remote and exposed landscapes in England. Experience a section of the trail on a day walk or explore further over 3 days or 3 weeks, the choice is yours.
Along the way, you’ll pass market towns such as Hebden Bridge and Hawes, as well as smaller villages, with plenty of opportunities to relax and enjoy the local cafes, pubs, shops and visitor attractions. If you’re looking for places to stay, you’ll find a variety of accommodation options from bunk houses and campsites to guest houses and hotels all looking to give you a very warm welcome.
