Wander like Wordsworth around Ullswater

Ullswater, Cumbria

Take a trip to Ullswater and enjoy the fabulous lake and the crowd of golden daffodils which inspired the poet William Wordsworth.

Make a date to visit Ullswater, which inspired William Wordsworth to pen his most famous poem, ‘I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud’. After a visit to Glencoyne Park by William and Dorothy Wordsworth on 15 April 1802, something of a phenomena also began as each spring, nature emerges as a crowd of golden daffodils.

Experience the stunning scenery of the Ullswater Lake on one of the largest heritage passenger fleets in the world with Ullswater ‘Steamers’. Ullswater runs a serpentine course for eight miles through expansive vistas of the Lake District’s highest mountains; so, sit back, relax, and enjoy this magical valley and see the place that inspired William Wordsworth to pen his most famous poem for yourself.
