This tour focuses around the Western Lake District travelling over the Wrynose and Hardknott passes, the steepest in England, stopping to view the extraordinary remains of Hardknott Roman Fort 1000ft up on the fells. See the spectacular views to Upper Eskdale, Scafell and Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountains. A stop for lunch in Eskdale before boarding the L’all Ratty on the Ravenglass and Eskdale railway. In the afternoon you will drive onward to “Britain’s Favourite View”, Wastwater, England’s deepest and most dramatic lake. Your next destination is the splendid 14th Century Muncaster Castle surrounded by its internationally acclaimed gardens and famous for its World Owl Trust. The beautiful scenery of the Coniston Fells and Coniston Water brings to an end this classic of all Lake District tours.
