Creating a natural barrier between the west and east of northern England, the Pennines form a chain of mountain and moorland inviting you to escape the great northern cities and industrial towns of the region. The north east of England includes some fine walking country, including the Yorkshire Dales, the North Pennines, North York Moors, the heritage coast and moorlands of Northumberland and County Durham - the Land of the Prince-Bishops.
In Yorkshire you can find long distance walking trails such as The Cleveland Way and the Yorkshire Wolds Way, as well Historic Walks for a little added interest. Similarly in Northumberland the St Oswald's and St Cuthbert's Way gives opportunity for walks of a historical nature, as well as ample choice of long distance walks such as The Reivers Way and The Teesdale Way.
Sections of longer National Trails also appear in this area of the country, with Hadrian's Wall Path and The Coast To Coast both having a substantial presence here.
