Full description
Leaving Chester 3 times a week, this tour heads approximately 2 hours North to the Lake District via the M6 Motorway. 

Your driver and guide will take you to the medieval village of Hawkshead, famous for its connection with Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth. Have time here to explore the cobbled alleys and get something to eat, wandering through shops, cafés, galleries, and so much more. It's a beautiful village, and a definite highlight of the tour. William Wordsworth's old Grammar School can also be found here, along with St. Michael and All Angels Church, which overlooks the village of Hawkshead.

The next part of the tour takes you to Tarn Hows, so renowned for its beauty that it's one of the most photographed locations in the Lake District. Take in the stunning scenery and look out for Brantwood, the former home of social reformer and art critic John Ruskin.

When your Lake District tour comes to an end, you will be transported back to Chester.
