Go WightAway this June as we take you away to the majestic Lake District to experience the best of railways & pleasure boat cruises on offer, with days out that hark back to Victorian Britain.
There is a full scenic day out of the Lakes, with our local guide, visiting Coniston Water, Ambleside, Grasmere, home of Gingerbead, & Keswick – famed for the Pencil Museum. Your guide give you a full incite in the history, geography and geology of this iconic region of England, all from the comfort of your luxury, air-conditioned coach with plenty of stops and photo opportunities along the way.
You will experience 2 of the greatest rail journeys in England. There is a full ‘Victorian’ day out, with a journey on the Haverthwaite Railway, a boat cruise across Lake Windermere to Bowness and then a visit to the Victorian Holkam Hall, home of Lucy Cavendish and her husband Tor McLaren who extend a warm welcome to all visitors, with a Cream Tea included. There is a private guided tour of the Estate, set in exceptionally beautiful countryside with gardens that merge into parkland, framed by the Lakeland Hills.
The highlight of this holiday lets you sit back and relax as you travel through the breath-taking scenery of Cumbria with a journey on the iconic Settle to Carlisle Railway. This is a dramatic and inspiring journey through some of England’s finest scenery on this great feat of Victorian engineering. Offering wonderful panoramic views, one of the most amazing constructions is sure to impress – the Ribblehead Viaduct.
