Cleveland Way National Trail

About

The Cleveland Way National Trail is a great way to take in the beauty of North Yorkshire’s wide open spaces and soak up the culture of the splendid towns and villages of the North York Moors and Yorkshire Coast.  

The 109-mile trail has been delighting walkers for over 50 years and can be enjoyed in shorter segments or as a satisfying, nine-day adventure. The trail’s horseshoe shape can be undertaken in either direction, but working your way around clockwise, from Helmsley to Filey, will likely keep the wind at your back. 

The trail starts in the splendid market town of Helmsley, complete with tea shops, a castle and wondrous walled gardens. Heading west, you’ll reach Sutton Bank, home to some of the finest views in England, before meandering north through stunning heather moorland.  

You’ll meet the coast at Saltburn-by-the-Sea and follow a dramatic coastline south, visiting the seaside treasures of Staithes, Runswick Bay, Sandsend, Whitby, Robin Hood’s Bay, Ravenscar, Scarborough and Filey along the way. On your coastal ramble, the incredible landscapes will be accompanied by the UK’s best fish and chips, Whitby’s towering abbey ruins, and the whispered tales of smuggling in days gone by.
