Tour of the Lake District Highlights

  • Explore every corner of the English Lake District - a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Escape the crowds in the wild and undeveloped Western Fells
  • Wander quiet lanes in beautiful Lakeland villages such as Coniston, Boot and Grasmere
  • Enjoy wonderful views across the many lakes that give the region its name
  • Sample locally-brewed ales in traditional English Pubs which brew their own beer

The Tour of the Lake District circuit will take you on a true highlights tour of the magnificent Lake District National Park. Enjoy majestic views across Lake Coniston and Derwentwater, picture-perfect villages like Rosthwaite and Grasmere, and the dramatic steep-sided valleys of Borrowdale and Eskdale.

The route also provides a taste of both extremes of the Lakes. On the one hand you’ll visit the historic market towns of Windermere, Ambleside and Keswick - bustling centres which boast a fantastic array of quality restaurants, pubs and art galleries. But the Tour of the Lake District also leaves the crowds behind, heading deep into the Western Fells. In the quiet valleys of Eskdale and Wasdale you’ll meet fewer fellow travellers, but experience warm hospitality in traditional Lakeland pubs.
