If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and discover a place where the beauty of nature and charmingly quaint villages and rural life prevail, this is the tour for you.
Depart from London with your first class train tickets and arrive at Oxenholme station where you'll meet your tour guide and transport for the day. It's time to hit the road and see the Lake District! Your first stop will be Windermere, where you'll enjoy a cruise on England’s largest Lake. Don't forget to bring your cameras to take photos of the stunning views from the lake and the Lakeland mountains.
Then, you will visit Hill Top Farm, home of Beatrix Potter. This characteristic house with its lush gardens and surroundings is the setting for some of Potter's most celebrated tales. Rediscover your childhood as you explore the Potter’s charming house – it still contains some of her favorite things!
The day continues with a visit to the village of Hawkshead, as well as a photo stop at Tarn Hows. Breathe in the fresh country air and see the famous Herdwick sheep grazing. Before heading home, you'll get to enjoy a deliciously British cream tea at Beatrix Potter’s family home, Lindeth Howe. Tuck into fresh clotted cream, jam and scones in this beautiful country house surrounded by a 6-acre private garden.
After a day exploring all the Lake District has to offer, your guide will escort you back to the train station for your return journey back to London.
