The Cumbria Coastal Way (CCW) is a 298km/182 mile long distance footpath (LDP) allowing users to travel from Cumbria's southern border to just north of the English–Scottish border. It follows some interesting scenery such as the red sandstone cliffs of St. Bees Head.

Officially opened in the early 1990s this footpath starts at Silverdale just across the border in Lancashire, where it joins the Lancashire Coastal Way. From there it works its way around Morecambe Bay, along coast to and through Barrow-in-Furness and then north passing Seascale to the lighthouse at St. Bees Head, the most western tip of Cumbria. It then continues north along the coast past the coastal towns of Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport to Grune Point before heading east for Carlisle
