England’s Lake District

The extraordinary beauty of glaciated lakes and pastoral farms.

March 15 – 24, 2024

With its tranquil lakes, secluded valleys, and rugged mountains, the Lake District National Park is one of the UK’s most beautiful destinations. In 2017, it was awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO, who observed: “the combined work of nature and human activity has produced a harmonious landscape.”

Our Lake District itinerary explores this synergy between nature and man and includes many iconic locations such as Buttermere and Blea Tarn. From the wooded valley of Borrowdale to the windswept hillside of Great Mell Fell, there is something for everyone as you immerse yourself in the rich culture and discover the landscape that inspired the poet William Wordsworth and painter JWM Turner.

Guided by our local experts, you will photograph many of England’s finest views. While each has been carefully selected to yield maximum reward for minimum effort, climbs between 300 and 700 feet are necessary to reach the best vantage points. Therefore, you will need to be reasonably fit to make the most of your visit.

Fear not, however! There will be ample opportunity to rest those weary legs on our daily activities, which include a cruise on one of Ullswater’s famous steam-powered pleasure boats and a visit to England’s last working slate mine.
