5 Day Select Good Companions Holiday

This enchanting holiday is based on the outskirts of the Georgian gem of Whitehaven, a port town on the west coast of Cumbria, close to the Lake District National Park. Here you will find a pretty seventeenth century harbour and elegant architecture along with a host of attractions. Perhaps discover the mysteries of the rum trade at the authentic Dark Spirit of Whitehaven Warehouse. Out and about we explore the stunning Lake District, calling at William Wordsworth’s Cockermouth and the quaint market town of Keswick, we stop at the coastal town of Workington and enjoy a cruise on Lake Windermere.

Itinerary

Your Excursions

Keswick & Cockermouth
Nestling on the shores of the Derwentwater, the heart of bustling Keswick is its quaint Market Square and 19th century Moot Hall. Perhaps visit the museums or local art and craft galleries or stroll to the lakeshore. We continue to Cockermouth, birthplace of William Wordsworth and home to the townhouse where he was born as well as a fascinating history wall depicting the town’s past.

Bowness-on-Windermere Cruise
We enjoy a leisurely cruise on the legendary lake and take time to look around Bowness - a sprawling tourist town in the heart of the Lake District with an exquisite Victorian influence.

Whitehaven & Workington
Enjoy a visit into the heart of Whitehaven for free time to explore the resort at your own pace – don’t miss the Dark Spirit of Whitehaven Warehouse. Later we make a stop in the coastal town of Workington at the mouth of the River Derwent where you’ll find a working harbour, historic churches and the Helena Thompson Museum with its displays of Georgian pottery, glass, silver and furniture.
