What you can expect

On this adventure to the Lake District,board a train in London and travel northwest to the area that inspired many of the author's pastoral tales. After a scenic cruise on serene Lake Windermere, complete the day with traditional English tea.

Begin your day at London's Euston Station and hop on a train to Oxenholme. Gaze out the window as you pass through the calming English countryside with its rolling hills and bucolic landscapes. Upon arrival in Oxenholme, meet your local guide for a tour through the quaint and artsy Lake District, famous for its literary connections to children's book author Beatrix Potter. Travel to the mediaeval village of Hawkshead, where you have time to explore the whitewashed houses and cobblestone streets

During the summer months, pay a visit to Hill Top, the rural farmhouse of Beatrix Potter and the inspiration for many of her stories. Head through the spectacular glacier-carved valleys of the Langdale Pikes, and, if you're travelling in winter, pass by Beatrix Potter's Yew Tree Farm, which appeared in the film Miss Potter.

Arrive in Waterhead and board a boat for a scenic cruise across Lake Windermere, the largest lake in England. Sit back and take in breath-taking views of the peaceful Lakeland Fells as you glide along towards Bowness Bay. Complete this bewitching experience in a truly British way—with traditional tea at the Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel, which was once owned by Beatrix Potter herself.
