This classic cycling holiday in the UK, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne to Edinburgh, follows the National Cycle Network Route 1: Coast and Castles using the North Sea Cycle Route. This is a classic cycle route full of awesome scenery and historical interest!
Arriving in Newcastle with its excellent transport connections, you'll spend your first night in this vibrant city. The next day, after following the River Tyne to the coast at Tynemouth, you'll head northwards following the wonderful Coast and Castles route which takes you up the beautiful and dramatic Northumberland Coast with its long sandy beaches and the spectacular castles of Dunstanburgh and Bamburgh.
After checking the tide times (a must!), your next stop is Holy Island, otherwise known as Lindisfarne, before edging your way to the Scottish Border at Berwick-upon-Tweed. From here you'll 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. At the end of the ride in Edinburgh you'll be met by our Skedaddle representative where you will either start your return journey from here by train, or you will be transferred back to your car in Newcastle.
This self-guided trip is for a minimum of 2 people and accommodation, transfers, luggage transfers and emergency back up are all included. We also provide detailed route notes and maps to enable you to do the route self-guided. Nothing could be simpler!
This trip can also be done as a 6 day option or as a fully supported Coast and Castles option.
