Welcome to the Trans Pennine Trail

A national coast to coast route for recreation and transport – for walkers, cyclists and (in parts) horse riders

Welcome

A national coast to coast route for recreation and transport – for walkers, cyclists and (in parts) horse riders

The Trans Pennine Trail (TPT) is an exciting route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders linking the North and Irish seas, passing through the Pennines, alongside rivers and canals and through some of the most historic towns and cities in the North of England.

The Trail from coast-to-coast between Southport and Hornsea is 215 miles (346Km) long.

A north-south route connecting Leeds and Chesterfield, a spur to York and a spur to Kirkburton means there are approximately 370 miles (595 km) of Trans Pennine Trail available to explore.

A great way to explore the trail is through one of our excellent value printed maps available through our shop .

The Trans Pennine Trail 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 many sections suitable for families, gentle exercise and people using wheelchairs and pushchairs. So whether on foot, horse or cycle; for a day or longer; alone with friends and family – the Trans Pennine Trail (TPT) can offer something for everyone.

Just to advise that the Number 6 Stamping card station M J Cycles in Warrington is not there anymore. If you are having problems with finding another station give the Head Office a call on 01226 772574

Sponsored walk final update: Thank you so much to all those who sponsored and encouraged the girls on their challenge of walking from chesterfield to Leeds with the 'likes' and comments on Facebook and in person.

A special thanks to Hannah in the TPT office for tweeting the girls' progress and arranging for certificates to to be given when we visited the council offices today with Mat Wright, Musical Director of Barnsley Youth Choir.
