- Location: Liverpool, Merseyside

Fun day out with an English Guide to the English Lake District.
The day will start with a very short panoramic tour of Liverpool on route north to the Lake District.
The tour will drive alongside Lake Coniston with stunning views and learn about Donald Campbell's Waterspeed record breaking attempts in the Bluebird.
We will then visit the pretty village of Grasmere and see the grave and the church of William Wordsworth and try some Gingerbread and Kendal Mint cake both local products.
After time to buy coffee or lunch we will visit Dove Cottage the home of the poet William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy Wordsworth from December 1799 to May 1808 & where he wrote most of his poetry.
We will then drive to Ambleside and after a short walk around (free time) we will take a lake Cruise to Lakeside on the opposite side of the lake where our luxury air conditioned vehicle will meet us to take us back to Liverpool late afternoon early evening.
If this is booked for a cruise excursion we will be back at least one hour before "All aboard" and we would do the short scenic tour of Liverpool on the way back instead.
