Viking Way Accommodation and Other Services
RambleFest lists details of Viking Way accommodation, pubs, restaurants, guidebooks and maps, and public transport.
The Viking Way is a 147-mile long-distance path between the Humber Bridge in Lincolnshire and Oakham in Rutland. The name derives from the influence the Vikings had in the area, a hint given by the fact that so many place names end with -by, an indication of a Viking settlement.

Viking Way Accommodation
There is plenty of Viking Way accommodation and other services along the route. We have split accommodation into Hotels & Inns and Bed & Breakfast. Guest Houses are included with Bed and Breakfast, and while we realise many of them are as good as some hotel accommodation, in order to avoid confusion we have opted for the simpler option. We are always looking to improve our Viking Way accommodation and other services listings – please email us if you have updates or recommendations.
Viking Way Restaurants and Pubs
We have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants along the Viking Way, but restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Many pubs serve bar meals or incorporate a restaurant, and we try to include information on real ale. Please let us know if our information is out of date.
Viking Way Public Transport
We have given information on public transport not just for the start and finishing points of the Viking Way, but also for places in between. More information is always welcome.
Viking Way Photographs and Logs
We want to display as many photographs as possible of the Viking Way, and there is always room for your photographs and walk logs – just email them to us. Alternatively, if you have them online you can send us the link.
