Mountains and lakes of the Lake District
The Lake District

On this trip, we will be visiting the County of Cumbria to spend the day exploring England’s most loved National Park, The Lake District. Home to England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike, and sixteen beautiful lakes, this place is packed with natural beauty. The lake district is famous for inspiring the creative works of well-known writers such as poet, William Wordsworth, and renowned children’s author, Beatrix Potter.

On this trip, we will discover the landscapes that influenced the adventures of the well-loved characters in Beatrix Potter’s tales on a visit to her home, Hill Top. Spot the parts of her house and garden that are referenced in her illustrations and re-live the magic of the little books as if you were one of the characters themselves as you explore Potter’s places of inspiration.

We will also be visiting the Lake Districts largest lake, Windemere, and will be spending the day exploring its surroundings. Get your camera ready to capture this picturesque landscape.

The price of this trip is £45. The cost of this trip includes return travel to the lake district and entry to the Beatrix Potter House.
