Happy Buses to Keswick & Coniston
We charge an entry processing fee for every walk participant which must be paid on-line via your dashboard. This includes a free Happy Bus seat from the Barrow and South Cumbria area to the start of the K2B or C2B Walk. You can also review and update your pick-up point from your dashboard (www.keswick2barrow.co.uk/dashboard)
Buses start from various points, picking up at locations along the route as listed below. Please be aware that all buses do not stop at each location. You must get on the bus at the location specified on your bus ticket.
2018 Pickup times for walkers are shown below. Times for 2019 will be confirmed closer to the 2019 event.
Please do not be late.
