1. From London: Lake District Tour with Cream Tea & Cruise

Meet a local tour representative at Euston Station to collect your tickets and itinerary for the day, then enjoy a relaxing train journey to Oxenholme in the spectacular Lake District National Park. On arrival at Oxenholme you will be met by a local guide, who will take you on your tour of the Lake District. This tour is the ideal way to explore the best of the Lake District, which is famous for its Beatrix Potter and Wordsworth connections.  Enter the National Park and travel north alongside Lake Windermere to the medieval village of Hawkshead. Explore this fascinating village where Wordsworth went to school. Continue on towards the renowned beauty spot of Tarn Hows for a photo stop before driving through Yewdale, passing Yew Tree Tarn, used in the film Miss Potter. Next journey into the famous mountainous valleys of the Langdales, which have been carved by glaciers to form spectacular u-shaped valleys. Arriving at the lakeside village of Waterhead you will join a lake cruise on England’s largest lake, Windermere, and sit back and enjoy the views of the Lakeland Fells (local word for mountains). Arriving at Bowness Bay, enjoy a cream tea at the Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel, once owned by Beatrix Potter. You will then be taken back to Oxenholme Station for the train back to London.

I was so fortunate to be the only customer on the tour that day, so I had the van and the driver/guide to myself. He did a fantastic job of ensuring I got to all of the tour spots even though my train from London was delayed en route by 50 minutes. I can certainly see why people rave about the natural beauty of the Lake District. The peaks are stunning and the history is fascinating! Thank you so much for the opportunity to experience this beautiful region.

The trip to Lake District on 8/5/2019 was excellent. The driver gave good instruction on the story of Beatrix Potter and the windmere. The trip was exactly as described on the website. We were fortunate to have a whole day good weather and enjoyed the fascinating scenery in lack district!

An enjoyable and well organised trip. The scenery is wonderful. The driver is extremely helpful and friendly. The explanation with lots of culture and history which clearly portrays the company and the driver do have love and passion in the Lake District.
