Getting There

Much of the North West Coast is accessible by train. You can download a map of where the train lines run here (pdf).

In many places the train line runs close enough to the coast for you to use it to get back to the start of your walk.

There are also many bus routes calling at coastal locations. 

For public transport information and journey planning visit the Traveline website or call them on 0871 200 22 33.

By Air or Ferry

The nearest airports to the coast are at Liverpool and Manchester. 

Car Parking

Car parks are readily available at all coastal towns. At more remote locations along the Coast Path you will find informal car parks, normally managed by landowners or Parish Councils.
