Pick a favourite lake from a tour of ten

Lake District, Cumbria

Not for nothing is this tour named the ‘Ten Lakes Spectacular’ – it takes you to see some of the Lake District’s show-stopping sights in one day.

The Lake District is often called ‘the most beautiful corner of England’, and this Mountain Goat tour shows you why. One of the company’s most popular tours, the Ten Lakes Spectacular takes you to the area’s most famous lakes, sites of historical interest, and on a cruise.

This unreservedly scenic expert-guided tour encompasses Windermere, Rydal Water, Grasmere, Thirlmere, Derwent Water, Buttermere, Crummock Water, Bassenthwaite, Ullswater and Brothers Water. Visit Romantic poet William Wordsworth’s house and eat gingerbread made to a secret recipe. Castlerigg Stone Circle, at around 4,000 years old, is another of the area’s historic gems. In Keswick, enjoy lunch and explore the traditional Lakeland market town, while the lake cruise will give you uninterrupted views of the Lakeland fells. You’ll have plenty of shopping time and stops for photographs too. 

Tours depart from Windermere, which is in northwest England, just over 3 hours from London by train.
