Beatrix Potter Tour of the Lake District
Quite simply a magical day which my husband and I will remember for many years to come
Maureen Sullivan, Iowa
Treat yourself to a breath-taking day tour of Beatrix Potter sites and beautiful Lake District scenery.
You will experience a panoramic tour of Beatrix Potter Country taking in inspirations and film locations from the 2006 movie Miss Potter as well as spectacular scenery.
As an area of outstanding natural beauty, the Lake District appeals to the romantic in everyone. Its rolling green hills and shimmering lakes famously inspired William Wordsworth and, of course, Beatrix Potter.
During the trip you’ll have plenty of chances to get off the bus and walk around the locations we visit.
Please note that as there will be walking involved in the tour it may not be suitable for those with mobility problems. At the end of the tour you can be taken to your accommodation in Windermere or Bowness or taken to the local railway station. For bookings less than 48 hours prior to the tour please call us for availability.
