There is more to the Lake District than its world-famous natural environment. There are many towns and villages to explore, whether nestled in valleys, on the side of a lake or along the coastline. This enchanting tour showcases the best the Lakes has to offer with each place having its own story to tell and character to discover.
Bowness & Windermere
Spend the day exploring Bowness and Windermere, two beautiful towns lying on the banks of Lake Windermere. Take a wander around the many visitor attractions and shops or go for a cruise along the largest natural lake in the UK.
Whitehaven & Cockermouth
With so many beauty spots, picturesque places and Georgian architecture there’s no wonder tourists come back to Whitehaven year after year. Attractions include the historic harbour and Rum Story Museum. Later in the afternoon we spend time in Cockermouth, a thriving town with medieval and Georgian streets beneath the castle walls.
Keswick & Grasmere
Begin the day with a trip to the pretty market town of Keswick offering a wide range of shops, restaurants and museums. Later you can enjoy time in Grasmere, a charming village known for being the home of the famous poet William Wordsworth who described this beauty spot as “the loveliest spot that man hath ever found”.
