Walk the Northumberland Coast Path this summer
Northumberland Coast Path Guided Walks 2014
The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Partnership is once more offering the chance to walk the Northumberland Coast Path this summer with the path originator, Iain Robson.
Each Wednesday between the 16th July and 20st August, Iain will lead a walk along a section of the path in the company of a coastal expert, maybe a botanist, geologist, ranger or birdwatcher. You can choose to do one section or them all, it’s up to you.
The start time for each section coincides with the arrival of a bus and we will return to our starting point by bus. With fantastic ticket deals available, why not leave the car at home and use the bus to join us?
Details of each of the stages can be found below, the walks are all free, but you will need your bus fare. We have given brief public transport information, but you can plan your journey at www.travelinenortheast.info
Booking is essential, you can book by phone on 01670 622660 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
