The charge covers all accommodation, breakfast, packed lunches, evening meals, and all the associated luggage support transport from the start of the Legs through to the end of the pilgrimage on Lindisfarne on Easter Sunday lunchtime. Additional costs are limited to your cost in getting to the start point, and in returning from Lindisfarne (lifts or taxis to Berwick train station (30 minutes journey) can be arranged but should be costed for). During the pilgrimage additional costs will be the price of any extra drinks, chocolate, snacks or odd lunchtime pints, or such like that you may wish to buy. Please note that cash points are limited to the major settlements of which there are few, so apart from pubs accepting cards, please remember to also bring cash with you.
