Cross Bay Walk 2017 26

A unique walking experience

On Saturday 10 June the Queen’s Official Guide to the Sands, Cedric Robinson, will lead a walk across the biggest expanse of tidal mudflats and sand in the UK. It is only possible at certain times of the year and under expert guidance.

Gather at the seaside village of Arnside and come prepared to walk the sands and paddle the waters as you cross the bay accompanied by all-terrain Bay Search and Rescue vehicles. Allow between 3-4 hours for the eight mile walk which takes in incredible, expansive views. Finishing at Kents Bank Railway Station near Grange-over-Sands, a popular way to return to Arnside is to catch the two carriage train back. Many end the afternoon with fish and chips, a meal or a brew at a pub.

Standard Entry: £10
