Full description

The tour departs from Liverpool and drives out of the city into the luscious surrounding countryside. Admire the views as you travel to the UK’s largest national park, the Lake District, stopping at the underground Rheged Discovery Center along the way.

During the partially narrated 2-hour journey to the Lake District, the tour also stops by the famous Castlerigg Neolithic Stone Circle where you can feel ancient mythical energy flowing around you.

Continue onto Grasmere Village, which boasts an array of beautiful 19th-century architecture, as well as the grave of well-known poet William Wordsworth. Afterward, let your nose lead the way to Sarah Nelson’s Gingerbread Shop, where you can taste a selection of traditional sweet treats.

Once you’ve filled up on gingerbread, it’s time to explore the national park and navigate through the Langdales, also known as "Little Switzerland". As you wander around the park, marvel at breathtaking views over the landscape, consisting of some of the most dramatic and diverse scenery in the UK.

Throughout the tour, enjoy plenty of stops both on and off the bus to make the most of your trip to the Lake District.

One of the highlights of the day includes an amble around Blea Tarn and a stop at Ambleside, where you can get lost in the maze of twisting streets or shop at a selection of picturesque stores.

I really recommend everyone to book this tour with BusyBus. Although it rained consistently, it was just fantastic. Above all, the fact that it was such a small group made the whole thing so familiar and pleasant. Extraordinary: our guide Steven (I wonder whether his name was Stewart? Sorry for that). Such a friendly person, attentive, helpful and of course experienced as a guide with many little "unnecessary" stories, all with the right pinch of humor. The visit to the gingerbread shop was almost worth the trip, despite a line in front, the baker took the time to chat with me (not too long). Totally recommended!

The tour is beautiful and the guide is very talkative and lively. The problem is that if you don't speak English and don't understand the Liverpool team, you're going to lose a lot. It could have a translation system for foreigners or at least a folder with information in some languages.

A great trip to a breathtaking landscape! We received very good snapshot impressions of the Lake District. Of course, one day is too short to experience very much. If I can I will definitely come back for a longer visit. Our guide Stuart was fantastic: very friendly and helpful, a fountain of knowledge about the region, its history, nature and literature, funny and entertaining. I can recommend the trip without any reservations.
