Witness the grandeur of the Lake District’s central mountains and western fells on this full-day High Mountain Passes tour from Keswick. Traveling in small groups, follow a route first traced by the Romans over the Wrynose and Hardknott Passes, two of Britain’s steepest. Ascend through breathtaking fells, visit Roman Hardknott Fort and ride the heritage Ravenglass and Eskdale railway. After a lunch break, admire spectacular views of Wastwater and stroll through the gardens of Muncaster Castle, home to the World Owls Trust before returning to Keswick.

Your tour will depart from Keswick and will head into the western swathes of the Lake District. On route you will drive alongside the beautiful Thirlmere, Grasmere and Rydal Water before driving through the little town of Ambleside. As you drive through Ambleside you will be able to see the Bridge House, which stands over Stock Beck and has been around since the 17th century. 

From Ambleside you will travel through the Langdale Valley, a favourite of rock climbers and walkers, as your guide shares information about the region and its culture. Ascend both the steep Wrynose and Hardknott Passes and soak up the spectacular views of the remote fells as you trace the narrow, twisting roads through the peaks.

Stop briefly at the top of the passes, take the opportunity to  marvel at the awe-inspiring views to Upper Eskdale, Scafell and Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountains.

Arrive in the Eskdale Valley, and take a memorable ride on the heritage Ravenglass and Eskdale railway, affectionately nicknamed ‘La’al Ratty’ (little railway). Trundle through picturesque woodlands and countryside, and stop for lunch (at own expense) at one of the quaint valley inns.

Afterward, continue to Wastwater, a beauty spot once voted as commanding ‘Britain’s favorite view.’ Drink in the panoramas that encompass Wastwater, England’s deepest lake, and the surrounding high screes and mountains, including epic Scafell Pike. Then, stop at 14th-century Muncaster Castle, owned by the Pennington family. Stretch your legs around the castle's gorgeous, 18th-century gardens, famous for their azaleas, camelias and rhododendrons; and admire the castle exterior as you stroll. If you wish, pay a visit to the Hawk and Owl Centre, home to a variety of prize owls and hawks, located in the grounds.

Then, relax on your return journey to Keswick, passing the beautiful Loweswater and Crummock water!

Step back in time to the 1770s and follow the life of famed poet and writer, William Wordsworth.  On this tour we will visit the houses that he lived in and travel through the beautiful Lake District that so inspired his work.

This private literary tour sets off from your hotel or guest house with your local private guide & driver in a comfortable car for a short drive through the Lakeland fells to two of the houses most closely associated with the 19th-century poet, William Wordsworth.

Step back in time to the 1770s to birthplace and childhood home of the much-loved poet, William Wordsworth & his sister, Dorothy. Situated in the small market town of Cockermouth, Wordsworth House is presented as it would have been when they lived here with their parents, three brothers and servants in the 1770s.

Today, this homely Georgian townhouse is almost like a real working house with real food on the dining table, a fire burning in the working kitchen and a recipe William and Dorothy might have eaten for you to taste. Ink and quill pens are ready in the clerk’s office, and if you play the piano, you might like to try the replica harpsichord.

The children’s bedroom is full of toys and dressing up clothes and in the Wordsworth Room there are books and games to enjoy. Down in the cellar, the household’s ghosts are waiting to tell their stories.

The garden is packed with 18th-century vegetables, fruit, herbs & flowers, just as it would have been when William played & learned his love of nature here.

There are plenty of fine old pubs in Cockermouth should you wish for a drink or a tasty lunch before heading down the A591 road, officially the best road in Britain to the beautiful little town of Grasmere and Dover Cottage. It was in this little cottage, at times ‘crammed edge full’ with people, in the heart of the remote Lake District, that William Wordsworth wrote some of the greatest poetry in the English language and Dorothy kept her famous ‘Grasmere Journal’, now on display in the adjoining Museum.

William came across his first Grasmere home by chance as he and his brother John walked along this lane with his fellow poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge in late 1799. He and his sister Dorothy moved in just a few weeks later.The cottage had once been an inn, the ‘Dove and Olive Bough’. It was now to be the Wordsworths’ home for the next eight years. In 1802 William married Mary Hutchinson & three of their five children were born here.

Step into Dove Cottage to get a sense of that time: stone floors, dark paneled rooms, glowing coal fires and the family’s own belongings. Little has changed in the house since the Wordsworths lived here. Stroll in the Dove Cottage garden, a place of refuge, meditation & inspiration. It was, wrote Wordsworth, ‘the work of our own hands’. Here they planted flowers & vegetables, watched birds & butterflies and, most importantly, read, talked and wrote poetry.

Next door to Dove Cottage is the wonderful Wordsworth museum which is full of his handwritten manuscripts & lots of personal mementos of the great writer, a must-see for all fans.

A varied, comprehensive day out of the some of the best sites in the Lake District. On this private tour you will see some beautiful lakes, mountains & villages anywhere. Plus a visit to Castlerigg Stonecircle... think a better version of Stonehenge!

This private tour by car pick you up at your hotel or guesthouse in the morning and take you back at either end of a day packed full of wonderful sights and memories that will last a lifetime.   There are over 80 lakes in the Lake District with about 16 of these considered major bodies of water and on this tour we will take you to at least 5 lakes and perhaps you will see more depending on the route to and from your hotel.

We will start off by visiting the charming town of Keswick.  For centuries the centre of the lead-pencil industry amongst other things and the place to be for everyone who likes outdoor life.  Just a short walk from the centre of town lies beautiful Derwent Water.  We’re sure you’ll agree that no matter where you live, there are few places more special than the spot below.

Just 10 minutes in the car and we will find ourselves at Castlerigg Stone Circle.  Many people only know of Stonehenge but there are hundreds of stone circles throughout Britain and this is my personal favourite.  The photos don’t quite do it justice so you may have to visit here to see what all the fuss is about.

We then head south, deep into the mountains along the famed A591 with beautiful Thirlmere on one side and the treacherous Helvellyn on the other before arriving at the popular small town of Grasmere which was the place where William Wordsworth made his home.  You might want to visit the charming church on your visit here or pop round to his grave at the back.

Next up is beautiful Ambleside which is a tourist attraction in its own right, surrounded as it is by national parks, forests, mountains and lakes.  A great place for a spot of gift-shopping or a lunch.  Perhaps you might want to see the famous Bridgehouse, the ancient tiny home sat on a equally small bridge.

Finally we make it down to Bowness on Windermere, the Capital of the Lake District.  Whether you want to spend time looking around town or perhaps taking a cruise on the lake, the choice is entirely yours.

At the end of the day, your driver and guide will return you right back to your hotel so you have nothing to worry about except whether the memory will fill up on your camera phone for taking so many photos

A private tour not to be missed, visiting some of the most rugged and beautiful sights in Roman Britain. Hardknott Fort on the famous mountain pass that controlled the route from the coast into the mountains.  The onwards to Hadrian's Wall, the incredible feat of engineering built by the Romans that cut across Great Britain at its narrowest point.

Whilst the Lake District is beautiful and picturesque to us today, 2,000 years ago it was on the very edge of the known world and under the sometimes tyrannical control of the Roman Empire.

The Romans would never have locals serving in the army and so the lucky Romans who policed this area often came from much hotter climes such as Iraq which must have come as quite a shock to them.

This private tour will take you along the edge of the known world in the comfort of a private car and with an expert local guide.

Having met you at your hotel, we will start the day by heading to the remote and slightly desolate Roman fort at Hardknott Pass.  Then it was built to safeguard a vital Roman mountain pass between the coast an inland defence at the town of Kendal and even today it must surely be amongst the most remote Roman fortresses on the planet.

These days the fort is occupied by the odd hardy but harmless sheep and a few passing ramblers.  Surrounded by rugged mountains, you can imagine how much the Romans would have appreciated the old bath house here.  Even today, it isn’t the warmest of places  and so after a short stay we will head back down to the valleys and onwards to the famous Hadrians Wall, sometimes simply known as the Roman Wall.

Emperor Hadrian built the wall to cross the mainland of Great Britain at the narrowest point from the Irish Sea in the West to the North Sea in the East.  It conveniently also acted as an official border for the Roman Emperor and a protection against those lovely Scottish folk who lived further north.

There are plenty of places to stop off along the way whether it is to walk along the wall itself or to explore some of the fascinating ruin and fortifications.

The scenery is quite different to the Lake District, less mountainous but somehow in many ways more rugged and wild looking with many opportunities to take incredible photos.

We will finish the day by visiting one of the famous Roman sites and museums at either Housesteads or Corbridge where you will be able to see some of the fascinating artefacts that have been uncovered in recent years and learn more about people who made the wall their home.

At the end of the tour, your driver and guide will return you right back to the 21st century and your hotel having had a day you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
