What You Can Expect
Travel around Lake Windermere, the most famous body of water in the Lake District, and then stop to stretch your legs in the charming village of Ambleside with its rural pubs and independent shops. Have your camera at hand for impressive lakeside shots at Rydal Water, and continue to Grasmere, a tiny village of limestone cottages framed by slate quarries and rolling green hills.
Drink in the beauty of Thirlmere, and hear how the reservoir provides water for most people living in the county of Cumbria. Admire the timeless views that characterize Borrowdale Valley and gaze out at Bassenthwaite Lake, one of the largest in the Lake District. Travel along Honister Pass, a tiny road that snakes around the mountains, and visit Buttermere village with its namesake lake.
After traveling through Newlands Valley to see Crummock Water, stop in the Cumbrian capital of Keswick for a leisurely lunch (own expense). Enjoy some free time for a look around the town, and then meet back up with your guide to continue exploring more Lakeland villages and beauty spots.
Stretch your legs on a stroll around Castlerigg Stone Circle and learn about its history that dates back to Megalithic times. Pass along Kirkstone Pass to see your last two lakes — Ullswater and Brothers Water — and then return to the start point in Windermere to finish your tour.
I really liked the trip around Lake District.
Malcolm was very nice and informative and helpful. The tour covered many beautiful areas of the Lake District without feeling rushed. Highly recommended for first time visitors to the Lake District or people who don't have many days to spend there. We really enjoyed the tour!
This tour was amazing!
This tour was amazing!
I would highly recommend this trip.
It is especially worth it if you are visiting the Lake District for the first time and would like to see some breathtaking views, and be taken on a whistle stop tour of the lakes, by a knowledgeable and friendly guide, who will answer any questions and give suggestions with places of special interest and the best way to see more of them, at a later date. Stunning scenery, plenty of time to take photos at regular intervals, our guide Chris was a Mecca of information, but was also left individuals to drink in the views whilst quietly chauffeuring us around. A very good tour
Excellent tour. Tony our guide was wonderful and very accommodating. Absolutely stunning countryside. Would highly recommend. And I'm going back.
Thank you so much for a great day!!!
Very nice trip day.
Absolutely fantastic tour is all I can say . The tour guide Malcolm was very informative right the way through and the views were absolutely stunning . Great value and would suggest to anyone visiting this lovely part of the u.k to go on one of these tours . Top draw .
This tour was lovely. It was a nice drive around the lakes, and the driver was fantastic. Very well versed and knowledgeable.
Can really recommend this tour and we went on a wet windy day. The guide I would give 11/10. We were in a mini but and I am not a good traveller but her driving was so good I was absolutely fine. She genuinely knew what she was talking about and questions were not a problem to her. The atmosphere on the bus was very relaxed and we all agreed that we definately saw so much more than what we would have had we taken our own transport.
