The Lake District

This week we have chosen The Lakes as our featured resort to give you a taster of just some of the things you can experience on one of our tours to England's Largest National Park.

The Lake District is a great place to explore as the area contains many of the most picturesque lakes in England and over the years have inspired such poets as Wordsworth and Coleridge.

Lake Windermere

Windermere is the largest natural Lake in England and is a major tourist resort with plenty of shops, hotels and restaurants.

On our 7 day tour to the Lake District, we take you to the southern end of Lake Windermere where you will get to take a trip on the Lake to Windermere town when you will have plenty of time to relax and go shopping. Plus, the boat fare is included in your holiday package!

Windermere Lake Cruises




Ullswater is the second largest lake in the Lake District and is home to the famous 'Ullswater Steamers' which creates the perfect opportunity to combine a Lake Cruise with some of the most famous and spectacular areas of the Lake District.

Our 5 and 7 day Lake District Tours from the Midlands and South include a trip on an Ullswater Steamer boat from Pooley Bridge to Glenridding, which is at the foot of the mighty Helvellyn – England's third largest mountain.



Keswick is the North Lakes' most popular holiday and day trip destination. Nestling between the Skiddaw Mountains and Derwentwater Lake, the town is in an idyllic location in the Lake District National Park.

To cater for the needs of tourists, visitors and holidaymakers, there is a wide variety of shops, cafes, tea and coffee roms, pubs and restaurants.

However, if you fancy doing something a little different on your visit to Keswick then why not stop off at the Pencil Museum and discover the fascinating history behind this every day item. It is also a great place to be inspired by local artists and to create your own artwork. The museum runs several workshops in creative crafts from animation, cartoons and illustrations to model making.
