Day 2: Take a trip through the heart of the Lake District to the ever popular town of Keswick, under the shadow of Skiddaw, before continuing to England's most beautiful lake, Ullswater, for a cruise on a steamer from Pooley Bridge to Glenridding. Return to the hotel via the narrow but beautiful Kirkstone Pass.

Day 3: Enjoy a one way train journey through the beautiful Leven Valley on the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway before boarding a delightful cruise along Lake Windermere, England's largest lake from Lakeside to Bowness-on-Windermere. Bowness is popular all year round and people come here to sail or just to relax and savour the atmosphere of the town's delightful setting.

Day 4: We travel to the Western Lakes for a nostalgic round trip on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, affectionately known by the locals as "La'al Ratty". We will board the train at Ravenglass and alight at Dalegarth. Enjoy the return trip on Lakeland's oldest and longest railway from the delightful village through two glorious valleys to the foot of England's highest mountain.
