Spend a day at the Lake District National Park from York! It's an ideal way to see the villages, market towns, and scenery associated with this stunning part of England.
As you make your way to the Lake District, you'll drive along the shores of England's largest lake, Windermere. You'll also pass through Grasmere, a charming village known for its links to the famous poet William Wordsworth and its world-famous gingerbread!
From Grasmere you'll travel past Thirlmere, a man-made reservoir with spectacular views of the surrounding valley, towards the market town of Keswick, where you can enjoy a bite to eat in one of the many glorious pubs or cafes.
You will also visit Ashness Bridge and Surprise View, both stunningly beautiful locations in their own right and you'll be treated to an incredible view of Derwent Water and the surrounding fells from both.
Finally a visit to the Lake District would not be complete without visiting Castlerigg Stone Circle. This historical landmark is thought to be 4,000 years old, making it older than Stonehenge!
You will also get to experience a Lake Cruise somewhere along your journey, where you will be able to marvel at the unbeatable views of the Lake District national park from the glistening waters.
You will conclude your tour by leisurely journeying back to York.
