Full description
Meet your guide at Euston Station to get started on your panoramic tour of Beatrix Potter Country. An area of outstanding natural beauty, the Lake District appeals to the romantic in everyone. Its rolling green hills and shimmering lakes famously inspired William Wordsworth and, of course, Beatrix Potter.

Immerse yourself in this breathtaking landscape on this full-day Lake District Tour, taking in Lake Windermere, one of the region's most dramatic waterscapes, and Esthwaite Water, where Beatrix Potter penned her famous children's stories.

Admire Hawkshead, a medieval village criss-crossed by quaint alleys, and Coniston Water, where you will enjoy a relaxing lake cruise. Then, get a real taste of the Lake District with a sumptuous cream tea at Lindeth Howe, the classic Lakeland country house that was once the home of Beatrix Potter and her family.
