HIGHLIGHTS

Touring the Lake District is quite exceptional and there is an excursion on all 3 days. Even the most gifted writers, with their artistry and graphic descriptions, would find it difficult to convey an adequate impression of this lovely area. So you must come and see, for instance; Windermere, Coniston Water, Grasmere and Keswick for yourselves
