                          Coach Information

Welcome to the Sunday Hancock coach website. Our coach departs at 9.30 from outside the Hancock Museum, Claremont Road, Newcastle. Our return times March - October are mainly 6pm with a few at 6:30pm.  During the winter months return times are 5.30 p.m.for  November and February and  5.00 p.m. for December and January.

Destinations are throughout the north of England and the Scottish Borders with emphasis on the National Parks. Every week a walks sheet is published with the variety of walks available, normally ranging between 6 and 14 miles. The coach will drop off individual walks en route all ending at the published destination, giving us the opportunity for socialising in a tea shop or pub.

New Members Welcome
