Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth Twelve Lakes Tour

Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth Twelve Lakes Tour

star-3.5
A delightful tour, with detailed commentary to the many places associated with Beatrix Potter’s life and characters. We stop at Castle Rigg Stone Circle, a testimony to mans presence in the area 4500 years ago. Older but smaller than Stonehenge this is the second most visited Stone Circle in the UK and in much more beautiful surroundings and some say the highlight of the tour. From here we make our way back along the shores of Thirlmere, a fresh water reservoir which is the fifth largest lake in the Lake District. We stop briefly at Dove Cottage the once home of poet William Wordsworth for a photo stop and if time a look in the gift shop if open. On completion we ride along the shores of Rydal Water through the market town of Ambleside and the famous Little Bridge House, arriving back in Windermere at around 1745. For those catching a train we will drop them at the train station and everyone else back at their hotel /B & B. All this completes one of the finest tours in England.

Wordsworth 250: A long weekend following in the footsteps of William Wordsworth

An exclusive tour for William Wordsworth fans in the 250th year since his birth. No other tour company provides this sort of in-depth tour. We visit both the more obvious locations such as Dove Cottage but also some of the more difficult to find locations which we have researched extensively and are key to his inspiration later in life. You will be accompanied by an expert guide and we will stop at times to read relevant extracts from both "The Prelude", his autobiographical poem of his early life, as well as many of his other writings. You will be taken on guided tours at all of the places that we stop at as well as having some exclusive delights! This is an absolute must for any serious fan of William Wordsworth.
