Coronavirus worldwide outbreak

12 February 2021

NO NEW bookings will be confirmed or deposits taken.  I am being cautious on when it is safe to assume that all services I use (accommodations, taxis and rail transfer) can be provided without a cancellation at a later date.

If you want to make a booking you must have a trip cancellation insurance policy OR fully accept that deposit and final payments already made are non-refundable. Your trip insurance should cover you if you request a change to your dates after confirmation (some airlines have already started cancelling or bumping to a different date after booking) or cancel due to any circumstances. When I start reserving rooms and booking taxis and luggage transfer for your tour I will have a contract with them to provide the service for you.

THERE ARE SOME SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS due to the threat of cancellation because of the Coronavirus worldwide outbreak.  The new rules have now been confirmed.

See this BBC article and check with your airline before even trying to book a walking tour.


Remember better to be safe and NOT come until 2022. We are supporting the health of our suplliers and our customers by delaying opening bookings. We also want you to have a good experience free of worry, and where places are open to eat and drink.


Hotels & Bed & Breakfasts have started to take bookings, but may have to close overnight due to covid health considerations. Some Cafes and Pubs are opening with distancing restrictions. There are some towns and areas of Britain where travel restrictions are mandatory. Restrictions may come into force at a moments notice if dictated by National Governments. Currently these are Manchester, Leicester, north-east England, London, SE England, Wales and Scotland.

Walk in the Steps of St Cuthbert from Durham to the Farne Islands and Lindisfarne

We are staying in Durham for three days. Your plans sound perfect for visiting Holy Island. I'm a Christian with a real interest in people like St Cuthbert, St Aidan and St Colomba and Jeff is very keen on boating and fishing. We'll see you in July.
