Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Lake District Rail Day Trip from London. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Arranging a meeting point can be confusing. You must be familiar with Euston station and initiative and very specific which ticket counter office they ( Local tour operator) meant. I had to stress to them was it the Euston station ticket office or the Virgin ticket office ?
Luckily it worked out fine and we were only a small group, hopped on the train followed their instructions and we were off to the magical Lake districts. Highly recommended. If I were to do it again, I'd stay at least 2-3 nights.
Great day all round.
A great way to get a taste of the lake district in one day
Great trip. Saw a lot. Well timed. Enjoyed the comments from the driver. I would definitely take another trip with Viator.
We were confused about the itinerary of the tour, thinking we would see Wordsworth's.
This tour is well worthwhile and was thoroughly enjoyable. The two tour companies involved in this trip organised everything very well. Evans and Evans made the train journey very easy and we somehow ended up with first class train tickets and Mountain Goat the tour company who met us when we got off the train were fantastic. We had an awesome guide and the whole day was fantastic. Definitely recommend this tour as the scenary and itinerary are fantastic. Beatrix Potter's house a must for anyone interested in Peter Rabbit.
Tour most enjoyable and the guide very informative
We did think the guide could have a made good use of a microphone.
This was an easy way to see the Lake District for a quick, first glance. We know we want to go back now! The person who met us at the Easton Station and gave us our tickets was very informative, and the guide on the tour (we went in a mini bus because there was overflow ) was very informative on the area and very entertaining. I would give this trip an A.

This is a very long day, but very worthwhile. Very well organised with pick up and return at Lakes District Railway. Train trip from London was efficient and comfortable. A great way to see a beautiful part of England in a day.
Obviously the Lake District is not a place that one can fully appreciate in less than a day, but this trip was a very nice first encounter with that beautiful region. Everything went very smoothly the trains arrived on time, the guide was friendly and competent, and even the weather was pleasant most of the time. It's a pity that there was not enough time to simply explore the surroundings at a slow pace and find better spots for taking pictures, but as I said, there is not much one can do in a few hours. Highly recommended!
Loved the tour, guide really made the trip, very nice man.
A wonderful day. Everything ran like clockwork. The guide was interesting and knowledgeable. Trains on time. Plenty to see and do. Just wish it had lasted longer. A wonderful 'taster' of the area.
A great day trip from London. Highly recommend upgrading on the train. Food, drink, and newspaper all provided, and also very comfortable. The guide was great!
Absolutely fantastic! The train was at a good time, not too early, allowing for a good arrival time in Oxenholme at 10am. We were picked up at the station and taken to the mini bus. We saw a lot of the Lake District and also had plenty of free time. A lot was included in this tour, more than the other people on the tour who had booked elsewhere. Included was entry into the World of Beatrix Potter, Hill Top and an afternoon tea, whereas others had to pay extra. The tour was long enough to see plenty of the lakes without being too long a day. Definitely recommend this tour to all ages. Well worth it!
