You will be admiring the best of the Lake District today, taking in many beautiful lakes in one day.
Ullswater is one of the first lakes we will have the chance to admire. Known as ‘the most beautiful lake in England’, it is the second largest lake in the National Park. Upon arriving in the Northern Lakes area, we stop at Castlerigg, a 4,000 year old stone circle surrounded by mountains- a great photo stop.
We will also stop for lunch at leisure with some free time to explore in the quaint town of Keswick. A famous Lakeland market town, it has links to poets Coleridge and Southey.
In the afternoon, we will travel alongside Derwentwater and through the valley of Borrowdale up towards Honister Pass, where there is a working slate mine. Dropping down into the next valley, we will admire picturesque Lake Buttermere as we drive alongside it to reach the top of Newlands Pass and take in the view of Moss Force Waterfall. We head back towards the Southern Lakes driving alongside Grasmere, Rydal Water and the largest Lake in England, Windermere.
