From Liverpool: Lake District Cruise Ship Shore Excursion
- Witness the most iconic of the Lakes in the area
- Enjoy lunch in Ambleside
- Discover the true Lake District with a walk in the National Park at Blea Tarn
- Sample the World Famous Grasmere Gingerbread
Boat trip over, you will now have the chance to explore the old mill town of Ambleside. Here, you can sample the delights of the Lake District in one of the many Bistros, Cafes, Hotels or Pubs. See the old Mill house standing on its own bridge across StockGhyll as you roam around this fascinating little town.
You will then head outdoors, gaining elevation as we go where you will see the true National Park in its unspoilt glory. Blea Tarn will astound you with its natural beauty and you can burn a few calories as you take a gentle hike along a historic trail across the valley. Grasmere will tempt you to sample the world famous Gingerbread with the aroma wafting out of the little shop. Step back in time to the late 1900's as you enter the shop to fill your bags with lashings of Gingerbread. Who knows, some of it may make it home to share with your friends and relatives!
For the lovers of Wordsworth's Poems, Grasmere is a must visit. Here you will find the last resting place of the great poet laid peacefully in his favourite place on earth. Your tour will end with the journey back to Liverpool and onto your ship.
