Lake District Tours

Postcard of the Lake District

This is the land that has inspired poets and artists – including Peter Rabbit’s creator Beatrix Potter and Romantic poet William Wordsworth. You’ll also be entranced by the natural beauty of the area. We’ll visit the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike, and the largest lake in the country, Lake Windermere (over 10 miles long). Fifteen other lakes and numerous small reservoirs make this a nature-lovers' and walkers' paradise.

Buttermere Lake

Buttermere Lake, set amid mountains, is one of Lakeland's most beautiful areas and is famous for its reflections that are visible on a calm day. Heathery slopes are dotted with sheep, leading to woodlands and windswept crags. You won’t want to leave…

Lake Windermere

Lake Windermere

Lake Windermere is a popular centre for boating and sailing as well as being a major scenic attraction. Marvellous views of the Langdale Pikes and other famous Lakeland features can be enjoyed from the peaceful shores of the picturesque Tarn Hows.

Rydal Water

Further north, tranquil Rydal Water contrasts with the bustle and activity of Lake Windermere. At the western end of the lake, steps lead to Wordsworth's Seat, which is thought to have been William Wordsworth's favourite viewpoint in the Lake District. Nearby at Dove Cottage in Grasmere, you can visit Wordsworth’s home, now a museum dedicated to his work and life.

"A sort of national property in which every man has a right and interest who has an eye to perceive and a heart to enjoy"
