Route 888

This route operates on an annual basis from the first Friday in July  - daily, until the last Sunday in September.

"Route 888 between Newcastle and Keswick is the lesser known bus service across the Pennines. It serves Hexham but then follows a south westerly route via Alston and Langwathby on the spectacular A686 to Penrith and then across to Keswick.

"This ranks as one of England’s most stunning bus rides crossing moors and mountains and passing through forests and incredible hairpin bends along the way."    Bus and Train User Blog.
