From Manchester: Lake District Sightseeing Day Trip

1. From Manchester: Lake District Sightseeing Day Trip

The tour departs from Manchester 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 on to Grasmere Village, which boasts an array of beautiful 19th century architecture as well as the grave of well-known poet William Wordsworth. Afterwards, let your nose lead the way to Sarah Nelson’s Gingerbread Shop, where you can taste a selection of traditional sweet treats from the region. After 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 the breathtaking views that sprawl across the landscape, which offers some of the most dramatic and diverse scenery in the UK. Throughout the tour there’s 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 before a stop at Ambleside where you can get lost in the maze of twisting streets or shop at a selection of picturesque stores.

Soo worth it for the price defo a must for me and looking to book future tours. When I go away I always use get guide. The tour was so worth it for the price, down side about it is.. we couldn’t spend much time at each place, and take it all in and was only there for 5 hours and more.. wish we had a full day for 8 to 9 hours as we felt it was rushed and couldn’t relax see much.

Adrian was very friendly and helpful.He was very caring and entertaining.Would definitely like to go with another Busy bus tour with Adrian as the host.He took special care so that the passengers are not bored anytime plus took care to ensure smooth driving.
