Coach holidays with Alfa Travel

Picturesque Lake District

Resort - Morecambe

Overview

There is no better way to end a day exploring the Lake District than to enjoy the views of the Lake District hills across Morecambe Bay as the sun sets over the Bay – one of England’s most memorable sights. The Lake District is England’s largest National Park and has inspired more poetry than any other area of English landscape. Both Wordsworth and Coleridge lived and worked here for a time and every corner provides a new and enticing vista. The scenery is often seen at its best from the water and in this fascinating holiday we have trips on the two largest lakes, Windermere and Ullswater to complement the views across Morecambe Bay.

Customers will be required to adhere to safety measures at interchange, which are likely to include restrictions on the capacity numbers in the services at any one time and socially distanced queues both inside and outside the Services. We will be utilising employees at the interchange as marshals, to make sure passengers are following the correct social distancing measures whilst providing extra reassurance and support. Random customer temperature checks by members of the team wearing appropriate PPE will be undertaken at the interchange. All excursions and venues featured within our holiday programmes will be risk assessed to ensure that we are still able to still deliver a memorable holiday experience operating in accordance with our own Covid-secure procedures.
