Travel in the footsteps of Beatrix Potter's beloved Peter Rabbit with a day trip to England's storied Lake District. Amble down quaint alleyways, snap images on the shores of stunning lakes and enjoy the fresh country air of this beautiful National Park – which inspired such Romantic poets as Wordsworth.

Depart Euston railway station for a scenic train journey north to Oxenholme, in the Lake District, arriving in the late morning. Take to the winding country roads to check out beautiful views of Lake Windermere, England's largest lake. Pause for some photos on the shores of inspirational Esthwaite Water, the lovely little-known lake where Beatrix Potter penned her cherished children's stories.

Continue along to Hill Top, Potter's charming 17th-century stone farmhouse. Climb creaking wooden staircases to the room where she wrote her famous stories – and even spot cheeky rabbits nibbling at the garden’s lawn – as you delve into Potter's whimsical world.

Meander through quaint alleyways in the medieval village of Hawkshead, before heading out to Coniston Water for a relaxing lake cruise. Stop for a delicious English Cream Tea at Lindeth Howe, a gorgeous country house hotel in the village of Bowness. Set in 6 acres of private garden, this classic estate was the Potters' family home.
