Great tour and very interesting but sorry we didn't get to see museum properly as we didn't have time.
On August 14, 2018 we joined the "Lake District Tour from Manchster", organised by Mountain Goat Tours & Holidays. We had booked the tour online from “Get Your Guide”. The tour started at 9 AM and lasted around 7 PM. Our first stop was at the tourist office of the organizers at Windermere, a small but beautiful railway station. Next stop was at hill top and then visited Beatrix Potter's 17th-century farmhouse and gardens. Potter a writer, illustrator, natural scientist, and conservationist best known for her children's books featuring animals, such as those in The Tale of Peter Rabbit. She is credited with preserving much of the land that now constitutes the Lake District National Park. Lunch time was at a village Hawkshead , famous for its Old Grammar School where William Wordsworth was a student. Finally, but not the least, the cruise in lake Windermere. All in all it was a lifetime experience. The whole tour was well organized and our guide Carl and Mathew mesmerized everybody p
I loved being able to walk around and take photos. I travelled from New Zealand to tour around the UK. As I have been a Manchester United fan since 1974 I had to fulfil a lifetime wish to visit Old Trafford. Two hours went very quickly!!! However I was very happy to have done the tour and ticked off one of the things on my “Bucket List” ❤️❤️❤️
Having visited Anfield & Old Trafford the previous day I was looking forward to see how this compared. It was the better of the three. Much more informative and engaging than the other two perhaps because they didn’t have their history they made more of an effort. Great experience, well worth a visit.
I learned a lot about the city and was able to visit many of the key attractions that were on route or nearby.
