From Manchester: Lake District, Windermere, and Lancaster

1. From Manchester: Lake District, Windermere, and Lancaster

Depart from Manchester in the morning and head straight for the lovely Lake District. Stop first at Bowness, situated on the shores of Lake Windermere. Take some free time to stroll along the lake, opt for a scenic cruise, or wander around the town and admire the sublime views.  Travel around the southern tip of Windermere toward Coniston Water. Take in views of this lake before arriving in the picturesque village of Hawkshead. This is where poet William Wordsworth attended grammar school.  After exploring the quaint village, take the narrow country roads north towards Grasmere, a place Wordsworth described as "the loveliest spot that man hath found." Enjoy spectacular views of Ullswater Lake as you continue on back roads to the southern shore, and then onwards out of the Lake District to Lancaster.  A contrast to the already-visited villages, this town boasts majestic medieval architecture and a spectacular castle that looms over the surrounding district. From Lancaster, head back toward Manchester, arriving in the early evening.

What people are saying about Lancaster, England

Amazing places! The driver-guide explain you everything during the trip and then you have your own time to spend as better as you think. You don’t have to stay with all the group. My guide, Darren, is amazing

Great trip and would highly recommend.Apart from trying to locate the pick up location, everything else was well organised. From the stops to information provided about the place. Multiple picture stops

Beautiful places covered. Scenary awesome. Windermere cruise (optional) was totally worth. Itinerary planned very well. Lovely spots as picure-stops. Unfortunately Lancaster had to be dropped

This was my first trip with #getyourguide and it’s worth it. Experienced and well trained guide. Enjoyed a lot. Looking forward for upcoming trips

It was a great experience. I look forward to another tour
