The afternoon ends with a cruise on the longest lake in England, Windermere. Throughout the tour there will be plenty of time to admire the scenery, as your local guide takes you through one of the most beautiful corners of England.
On leaving the Lakeland village of Windermere the tour heads to the medieval village of Hawkshead, which dates back to the 14th Century and grew to be an important wool trading market. During free time there is the opportunity to explore the village famously linked to William Wordsworth, who attended Hawkshead Grammar School, and children’s author Beatrix Potter who lived nearby.
The tour heads onwards to the picturesque tarn of Tarn Hows, where you will have chance to admire the view of the tarn, with the Lakeland Fells as the dramatic backdrop. Continuing towards the lakeside village of Coniston the Mini-Coach provides a great view down the Yewdale Valley. Travelling through the Coniston area you will hear about the famous World Water Speed records from the Campbells on the third largest lake in the National Park.
