This trek is designed for 12 sections, and of course, includes the best natural attractions along the way. Two-thirds of the way passes through the territories of three national parks: the Lake District, the Yorkshire Valleys, and the Heather Heathlands of North York. Picturesque mountain and lake landscapes, and also the authentic spirit of the British outback are truly unique.

The final destination is the town of Robin Hood Bay on the precipitous shore of the North Sea. The trip across Northern England is second place on the list of 50 most interesting walks in the world. If you are serious about defeating obstacles on the way and are ready for physical exertion, do not forget to stock up on waterproof clothing and a detailed map.
