The Pennine Way

Walk The Pennine Way

Founded in 1965, The Pennine Way was the first National Trail in the UK and led the way for the expansive walking culture we have today in the UK.

This 268 mile/429km walking route from Edale in Derbyshire to Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders crosses some of the finest upland landscapes in England, and passes through National Parks, Nature Reserves and Sites of Special Scientific Interest.

The Pennine Way

The Pennine Way from Northumberland National Park

The Northumberland stretch takes you from the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, alongside Hadrian's Wall, where for 8 miles you'll walk in the footsteps of the Roman soldiers that once built the wall. Walking up through Northumberland National Park you'll pass through heathery moor with dramatic views, especially in September when the purple heather is in bloom. The quaint village of Bellingham is perfect for treating yourself to a cake and a cuppa and there are several walker-friendly B&Bs for you to choose from.

It can be quite hilly and remote in places, particularly in the Cheviots, but you reap the rewards in the breathtaking panoramic views of Northumberland you discover along the way. At times the route can be quite remote and isolated so make sure you pack your provisions and are suitably prepared - the Pennine Way is a route for experienced walkers.
