Hadrian's High Way is a superb 102 mile (163km) route which runs from the Irish Sea coast of Cumbria to Vindolanda in Northumberland. Hadrian's High Way largely follows the route which, historically, would have been taken by troops, couriers and baggage trains travelling from the Roman port and supply depot at Ravenglass to the garrisons stationed along Hadrian's Wall. More

North Wales Pilgrims Path

6 days walking, based in Conwy

The North Wales Pilgrim's Way is a 150 miles (240km) route linking Basingwerk Abbey near Holywell to Bardsey Island. It follows in the footsteps of pilgrims who, for centuries, have walked through some of the most remote landscape of North Wales and the length of the Lleyn Peninsula to Bardsey Island (Ynys Enlli) - the 'Island of 20,000 Saints'.

In 2018 we will offer the eastern half of the route from Basingwerke Abbey to Abergwyngregyn, with the section from Abergwyngregyn to Bardsey Island to follow in 2019. More

Icknield Way Path

8 days walking, based in Cambridge

The Icknield Way is part of the oldest and longest road in Britain, which once stretched from the English Channel Coast in Dorset to the east coast and The Wash. At its western end the Icknield Way picks up where the Ridgeway National Trail finishes, and at its eastern end it gives way to the Peddars Way. Enroute the Icknield Way passes through the varied scenery of the Chilterns AONB, the rich farmland of Cambridgeshire and the Norfolk Brecklands. More

Pennine Way

The Pennine Way, which follows the backbone of England from the Derbyshire Peak District to the Scottish border is one of Britain's most challenging National Trails. The 268 mile route, which passes through three National Parks, a European Geo-park, and a World Heritage Site, provides upland walking of the highest order. Footpath Holidays offers the route as three separate holidays, which allow guests the choice of completing the route over several years in manageable one week stages, or stringing all three together into an epic journey. More

Coast to Coast

The route which crosses the north of England from Coast to Coast was made famous by the late Alfred Wainwright whose guidebooks have introduced so many to the joys of walking in this area. It takes in three National Parks; the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors and divides naturally into three sections. Footpath Holidays offers three tours, each of which offer fine walking in their own right, and when strung together enable our guests to tackle a challenging 190 mile route in its entirety. More

A Pennine Journey

6 days walking, based in Hawes

In 1938, with the shadow of war looming, Alfred Wainwright took some holiday and set off for a circular walk which would take him north from Settle, along the eastern flank of The Pennines and through the Yorkshire Dales, along one of the finest stretches of Hadrian’s Wall, and then back down the western flank of the Pennines to his original start point. A Pennine Journey is broadly based upon his challenging route.

In 2017 we began the process of offering successive sections of the Pennine Journey, giving guests the opportunity to complete this challenging route in manageable stages over three weeks. In 2018 we shall be continuing where we left off in 2017, with the stretch from High Force to Garrigill. More
