The Trans Pennine Trail

The Trans Pennine Trail (TPT) is an exciting route for walkers, cyclists, wheelers 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 (595km) 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.

If you see a problem out on the Trail please report direct to our National Office via email, phone or social media.

Thank you to everyone who responded to our Visitor Survey that ran for 7 weeks. The TPT national office have analysed all the results and produced a report that will help inform actions to improve the quality of the TPT and better promote the route to others.
