manchester to lancaster to lake district


In mid-June I'm planning on flying from the US to Manchester on my way to do the Coast to Coast walk. I was thinking of NOT staying in Manchester upon arrival but taking a train to Lancaster...spending the night there, see the castle the next day and then train (? bus?) up to St. Bees to begin the walk...Does this sound feasible? I've been looking on the UK rail website, using the trip planner and it looks like it wouldn't be hard, but...is that reality? I haven't booked my flight yet, so I could put in more days before the walk if there's something or somewhere I ought to stop and see...? Thoughts? Advice?

Yes very doable sounds like you have got plan about right

Man Airport to Lancaster is via a direct Trans Penine express service which are frequent and just over an hour

Lancaster to St Bees will be a Northern rail loval stopping service which takes you around the coast and is a pleasant journey

Station staff at Lancaster station are very friendly and will only be too pleased to help you.

Hotel wise in Lancaster the betst located one for you will be the Best Western Royal Kings Arms which is on the edge of the shopping area 5 mins from the station
