Getting There

Reaching the Cleveland Way National Trail by public transport is easy.

Bus and Rail

Rail services connect to York, Malton, Thirsk, Middlesbrough, Great Ayton, Whitby, Scarborough and Filey. In addition bus services can get you to the start at Helmsley from York, Malton or Scarborough. 

For public transport information and journey planning visit the Traveline website.

Ferry and Plane

If arriving at Hull using North Sea Ferries you can catch a bus from King George Dock to the Paragon Interchange where you can pick up train, bus and coach services. Catch a train to Scarborough and then take the 128 bus from Scarborough to Helmsley. 

On finishing the Trail you can catch either a bus or train directly from Filey back to Hull. 

If you are arriving by plane to Leeds Bradford, Manchester or Newcastle airport it’s best to journey to York by train and then catch the daily bus through to Helmsley.

Car Parking

If you are coming by car there are car parks located at numerous points along the Trail. Many of these are shown on the map. There are charges for parking at some car parks. If you want to leave your car in a public place whilst spending several days walking on the Cleveland Way we recommend that you inform the local police of your intentions.

Tourist Information Centres can provide advice on public transport and on where to park your car.
