Your tour at a glance

This tour gives you a day in the Lake District National Park, from Manchester. Its an ideal way to see the villages, market towns and scenery associated with this stunning National Park. 

Leaving Manchester five times a week, the tour heads North to the Lake District via the M6 Motorway, in under two hours you will arrive in the Lake District.  

You will start the Lake District tour by making your way from Bowness Bay towards Waterhead, cruising on England’s largest Lake, Windermere. Sit back and enjoy the unrivalled views from the Lake towards the fell ranges beyond. 

After arriving at Waterhead you make your way to Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top Farm, where she wrote many of her famous children’s stories in this 17th century cottage. You will have the opportunity to explore the gardens and visit the shop. You can choose to visit the house (extra admission charge).

Continuing onto the medieval village of Hawkshead, you will have a little time to explore its many delightful features. There is plenty of photo opportunities as William Wordsworth old Grammar School is located here. 

Onwards then, to the renowned beauty spot of Tarn Hows, which is one of the most photographed locations in the Lake District. Soak up the stunning views looking towards the mountains at Tarn Hows, before making your way back to Windermere.

As your Lake District tour comes to an end, we will then continue our journey back to  Manchester.
