Getting There

Both ends of the Pennine Way are accessible by public transport. Edale railway station is about 5 minutes walk from the centre of the village, where the Pennine Way begins. Trains from Manchester and Sheffield stop at Edale. There are limited bus services to Edale.

At the northern end of the Trail, Kirk Yetholm has a bus service to Kelso (35 minutes). Connections can be made onwards from Kelso to all parts of country and to pick up rail services at Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Transport in the borders can be tricky. If you need help getting back to start of your walk, or to reach the end, or anything in between try Border Village Taxis, a small taxi company familiar with the Trail in the borders. 

We have compiled some hints and tips to help you find your way using trains and buses in this document (pdf).
