Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your tour begins as you board your motorcoach for a scenic, two-hour drive to Lake Windermere in the Lake District. Upon arriving, you'll board your motor launch for a scenic cruise about Lake Windermere. The largest natural lake in England, Windermere is 12 miles long, one mile wide and 220 feet deep, and lined with wooded fells, bays and promontories.

Next on your itinerary is a trip aboard the vintage Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway for a steam train tour of the Leven River Valley. Powered by an historic steam locomotive, your train features vintage railway touring cars.

Your tour continues with free time to explore Bowness, a charming village on the shores of Lake Windermere and one of its oldest settlements featuring Victorian and Edwardian buildings and cottages.

After picking up a souvenir or two, you'll board your motorcoach for a lunch at a local hotel. Here, you'll enjoy a local menu and a half pint of beer.

Your tour concludes with a relaxing return drive to Liverpool via the small village of Newby Bridge.
