Full Day Ten Lakes Spectacular Tour
This stunning tour covers the North, South and central Lake District and is a perfect introduction to the area. The Lake District is often referred to as the “most beautiful corner of England” and this full day tour introduces you too just that. Magnificent scenery of mountains, valleys, and lakes from the south to the north. The tour includes a visit to the 4,000-year-old Castlerigg Stone Circle set high on the fells, and time in Keswick. You travel over passes, through beautiful valleys, see waterfalls and Lakeland villages. You have plenty of stops for admiring the views and taking photographs.
This spectacular tour exploring the Western part of the Lake District over the high passes visiting 'Britain's Favourite View', Wastwater and the splendid 14th Century Muncaster Castle. Here we explore the Western Lake District, and our route is that fashioned by Emperor Hadrian’s Roman legions in the first century AD. Over the Wrynose and Hardknott passes, the steepest in England we drive past the extraordinary remains of Hardknott Roman Fort 1000 ft up on the fells. You will have the opportunity to walk through the fort and see the spectacular view to Upper Eskdale, Scafell and Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountains. In the afternoon we drive onward to Wastwater, voted ‘Britain’s Favourite View and England’s deepest and most dramatic lake. Our next destination is the splendid 14th century castle of Muncaster surrounded by its internationally acclaimed gardens with magnificent examples of azaleas, camelias and rhododendrons. You also can visit the renowned World Owl Trust. The beautiful scenery of the Coniston Fells and Coniston Water end this classic of all Lake District tours.
