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?
