From Manchester: Lake District, Windermere, and Lancaster

1. From Manchester: Lake District, Windermere, and Lancaster

Depart from Manchester in the morning and head straight for the lovely Lake District. Stop first at Bowness, situated on the shores of Lake Windermere. Take some free time to stroll along the lake, opt for a scenic cruise, or wander around the town and admire the sublime views.  Travel around the southern tip of Windermere toward Coniston Water. Take in views of this lake before arriving in the picturesque village of Hawkshead. This is where poet William Wordsworth attended grammar school.  After exploring the quaint village, take the narrow country roads north towards Grasmere, a place Wordsworth described as "the loveliest spot that man hath found." Enjoy spectacular views of Ullswater Lake as you continue on back roads to the southern shore, and then onwards out of the Lake District to Lancaster.  A contrast to the already-visited villages, this town boasts majestic medieval architecture and a spectacular castle that looms over the surrounding district. From Lancaster, head back toward Manchester, arriving in the early evening.

Darren i think was the best tour guide we ever had and we have seen alot. Well done to Rabbies. Definitely recommended tour. Even if its raining we enjoyed it. Goes to show how good the tour and Darren was. Thank you!

Brilliant trip to the Lake District visiting Windermere and villages close by and seeing other lakes along the way. We had good timing for each spot and did not feel rushed.

Felt like we had a private tour . Held in traffc for almost 2hrs, but Charly, whose very knowledgeable and experienced tour guide/driver made it a brilliant tour.

It was lovely, the guide Darin knows what he is doing and he surely made the trip awesome!

It was a great trip mainly because of Darren, our driver, guide, narrator and dj.
