Coast and Castles

5 Days Moderate

A classic UK cycling holiday from Newcastle upon Tyne to Edinburgh on The National Cycle Network Route 1: Coast and Castles, using the North Sea Cycle Route.

Arriving in Newcastle with its excellent transport connections, we'll spend our first night in this vibrant city. The next day, after following the River Tyne to the coast at Tynemouth, we'll head northwards following the Coast and Castles route. The route will take us up the dramatic and beautiful Northumberland Coast, with its long sandy beaches and spectacular castles, which include Dunstanburgh and Bamburgh.

Time permitting, the next stop is Holy Island (Lindisfarne), before edging your way to the Scottish Border at Berwick-upon-Tweed. From here you head inland up the majestic Tweed Valley to Melrose, which is famed for its gothic abbey.
Onwards then to Innerleithen, with the final leg a superb spot of cycling through the Moorfoot Hills and on to Edinburgh for a great finish in Scotland's capital city. From Edinburgh, you'll be transferred back to Newcastle for your journey home.
