Full Day Tour – Ref: ENG-MNPC-LAKE-1S

You leave manic Manchester behind and head straight for the lovely Lake District. Your first stop of the day is at Bowness that sits on the shores of Windermere.
You have time here to take a leisurely cruise upon the lake or wander around the town and admire the sublime views of the landscapes.

You travel around the southern tip of Windermere and towards Coniston Water. You enjoy the views of this body of water before arriving in the picturesque conservation village of Hawkshead. This is where the poet William Wordsworth attended Grammar School. After exploring the cosy village, you take the narrow country lanes north towards Grasmere, a place Wordsworth described as “the loveliest spot that man hath found”. We then take in spectacular views of Ullswater Lake as we head along country roads to its southern shores and onwards out of the Lake District to Lancaster.

It’s a contrast to all the villages you’ve visited, this town boasts majestic medieval architecture and a spectacular castle that dominates the surrounding district. From here, we return to Manchester for the early evening.
