Lake District Adventure with BusyBus – Full Day Tour

This is our award-winning full-day / 220-mile Lake District Adventure tour departing from Chester. The tour has been carefully designed with your leisure in mind combining a great price for a full-day tour and superb destinations! This is sightseeing the way it is meant to be done! We use our 16-seater luxury minibuses always ensuring everyone has plenty of seat space and a full window view. All our vehicles are the latest models, carefully designed to a purpose-built sightseeing specification.

Your tour is fully escorted and narrated with a jolly driver and knowledgeable escort who, invariably, will become more of a friend than a tour guide! Every passenger receives special attention and is encouraged to participate in the day as much as possible to ensure that you have a wonderful time with us.

ITINERARY

CASTLERIGG STONE CIRCLE

A superb example of a Neolithic stone circle set in the breath-taking scenery of the Lake District with a view of a number of the surrounding mountains and hills. Stand in the centre of the circle and feel the mystical energy flow from the ground up through your body.

GRASMERE

Most of the buildings date from the 19th or early 20th Century, though the Church dates from the 13th Century. William Worsdworth, who died in 1850, and his wife Mary, who died 9 years later, have tombstone in the churchyard of St Oswald’s Church, one of the most visited literary shrines in the world.

SARAH NELSON’S GINGERBREAD SHOP

This tiny, aroma-flooded quaint shop with happy costumed staff is neatly tucked away at the corner of the churchyard. You’ll browse through, soak up the history, and then sample this most wonderful delicacy before ladling yourself down with bags of the stuff to distribute proudly to your friends (if it lasts that long)!

LITTLE & GREAT LANGDALE’S

The Langdales is a superb home to some of the most dramatic and diverse scenery in the whole of Cumbria (if not Britain!) hosting some of the most photogenic scenery around. Weather permitting we’ll drive the “loop” of “Little Switzerland” and even attempt a summit on foot to work up an appetite (for food or more scenery!)

AMBLESIDE

Largely Victorian and home to the Roman Galava Fort – ex-resident to 500 Roman soldiers. Grew rapidly when the ferry terminal opened in 1845. St Mary’s Church (1854) was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott. The 17th Century Bridge House over Stock Ghyll is one of the most photographed scenes in Lakeland.

BOWNESS and BOAT LAUNCH

Cumbria’s most popular sprawling town developed after the opening of the railway line from Oxenholme and Kendal to Windermere in 1847. Home to a glorious lakeside boat launch. Here you can hop on the optional Lake Windermere Lake Cruise for a trip of a lifetime (£8.00 / $10).
