Full description
The tour departs from Liverpool and drives out of the city into the luscious surrounding countryside. Admire the views as you travel to the UK’s largest national park, the Lake District, stopping at the underground Rheged Discovery Center along the way. During the partially narrated 2-hour journey to the Lake District, the tour also stops by the famous Castlerigg Neolithic Stone Circle where you can feel ancient mythical energy flowing around you. Continue onto Grasmere Village, which boasts an array of beautiful 19th-century architecture, as well as the grave of well-known poet William Wordsworth. Afterwards, let your nose lead the way to Sarah Nelson’s Gingerbread Shop, where you can taste a selection of traditional sweet treats from the region. After you’ve filled up on gingerbread, it’s time to explore the national park and navigate through the Langdales, also known as "Little Switzerland". As you wander around the park, marvel at breathtaking views over the landscape, consisting of some of the most dramatic and diverse scenery in the UK. Throughout the tour, enjoy plenty of stops both on and off the bus to make the most of your trip to the Lake District. One of the highlights of the day includes an amble around Blea Tarn and a stop at Ambleside, where you can get lost in the maze of twisting streets or shop at a selection of picturesque stores. From Ambleside, you can opt to board a 40-minute cruise of Lake Windermere for £10 and then meet the bus at the end for your return journey to Liverpool.

    The tour was very interesting. Shelley our guide told some amazing stories and she drove like a champion, how to she got through the narrow streets was unbelievable and i would not be able to do such. Grassmere where we stopped was a lovely little town. The weather was a bit grotty but that is not the fault of Shelley. i would highly recommend tourists in Liverpool to go on such a tour.

    Unfortunately, too much was promised

    Should (excerpt from the description): "exciting hidden roads and routes that are not accessible to coaches". Is: normal coach with 48 participants, which of course does not go everywhere. Guide was very nice and entertained the group well. We would have expected more. With self-travel (four of us!) We could have saved a lot of money.

    Frank has been an amazing guide and friend during all day long. He always tried to explain his knowledge with great vivacity and humor. I definitely would recommend this tour. It doesn't start too early in the morning and you will be overwhelmed by the stunning beauty of the landscapes and villages!
