Excursions

Moving on we follow Windermere’s wooded banks to Bowness and then continue with a memorable drive over the Kirkstone Pass. 

HALF DAY: Enjoy a half day excursion to the county town of Lancaster, steeped in history from the Romans to the present day and well worth exploring at your own pace. 

HALF DAY: An extended half day tour to the elegant resort of Southport, with its beautifully laid out gardens and famous Lord Street – one of the finest thoroughfares in the north of England.
