This tour gives you a day in the Lake District National Park from Manchester. It’s an ideal way to see amazing landscapes associated with this stunning National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Leaving Manchester three times a week, the tour heads North via the M6 Motorway, and in approximately two hours, you will arrive in the beautiful Lake District.   Visit the medieval village of Hawkshead, famous for its connection with Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth. Explore its many delightful features — there are plenty of photo opportunities as William Wordsworth's old Grammar School is located here, along with St Michael and All Angels Church which overlooks the village. You will also have time to explore and get something to eat; see the cobbled alleys, shops, cafes, galleries, and many more attractions. You will travel past incredible scenery in the Lake District, stopping for photographs at the most beautiful spots as you meander through the central Lakes. Spend time in the Langdale valley and take in views of the Langdale Pikes. As your Lake District tour comes to an end, you will then continue your journey back to Manchester.

My first visit to the Lake District and what a delightful day! A Big Thank You to Jean, who was a superb Tour Guide, supplying us with a lot of history of the area, she was very helpful, friendly and with a great sense of humour. Excellent day, I would highly recommend! Thanks again, Jean

Jill was a fantastic tour guide. She knew the most beautiful spots, had great knowledge of the area, and was friendly throughout. The lakes themselves are one of the worlds most beautiful places, but it is a treat being able to take the less travelled routes. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to visit.

Lake District Tour was absolutely stunning! I had the virtue of being by myself on the tour, which meant that I got to visit more places in Lake District that you wouldn’t have time for with heaps of people. I had the pleasure of having Andy, who is such a good bloke and down to earth guy. He had great knowledge of the areas in Lakes District and showed me the most amazing views of lakes and mountains which were incredible. I would definitely recommend doing this tour as it is absolutely worth it and ask to have Andy as your driver, who will make the trip enjoyable and make you have a good time. Thank you Andy for the awesome day
