The TPT is an exciting new route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders that links the North and Irish seas. Part of the National Cycle Network, it passes through the hills of the Pennines, alongside rivers and canals, and through some of the best towns and cities in the North of England.
It is mapped and signed all the way, mainly traffic free and is surprisingly level considering the dramatic scenery along the way. Easy gradients and surfaced paths make some sections suitable for people using wheelchairs or pushchairs.
By foot, by bike or by horse; for a day or for a week; alone, with friends or with family the TPT can offer something for everyone. The length of the coast to coast route is approx 344km (213 miles) from Southport to Hornsea. The two north-south sections connecting Wakefield and Leeds, Sheffield and Chesterfield, and York take the total distance to approx 555 km (345 miles).
