The Northumberland Coast Path
Walking Holiday in Northern England
from Cresswell to Berwick-upon-Tweed

Walking in Northern England from Cresswell to the Scottish border town of Berwick-upon-Tweed,
via the Northumberland coast towns of Alnmouth, Warkworth, Craster, Dunstanburgh Castle, Seahouses, Bamburgh and Holy Island/Lindisfarne.

The Northumberland Coast Path is 72 miles long and is one of UK’s long distance way-marked walking trails. The walking holiday begins on the Northumberland coast at Cresswell and ends near the Scottish border at Berwick-upon-Tweed.
This walking holiday is suitable as a first hiking vacation as it is quite easy walking along this North Sea Coast with small seaside villages & towns, some great castles and Holy Island.
Spend a day visiting The Farne Island famous for puffins and fulmers.
The causeway to Holy Island is tidal and so this holiday is only available when the tides are favourable.

This walking holiday is great hiking for visitors to the UK as it offers a taste of England’s history; Roman, ancient, medieval and religious.
