Don’t miss this one - it's fab!

Morecambe is situated on the North Lancashire coast at the gateway to the Lake District. The resort boasts an expansive five mile promenade which looks out across the majestic sweep of Morecambe Bay. Stroll along during the evening and take in stunning sunsets and star reflecting waters. In the day, enjoy the extensive use of public art along the seafront; view the bronzed statue of Eric Morecambe, the town’s best-loved export and the many bird sculptures created by the Tern Project. In town, enjoy excellent shopping and the traditional Lancashire welcome and hospitality extended to all visitors. Explore the surroundings and sample the local cuisine and traditions, including the area’s famous thirst quencher, Nettle Beer, as well as mouth-watering potted shrimp and some of the best fish and chips in the country.

Windermere & Grasmere

Windermere, at 10.5 miles long, one mile wide and 220 feet deep, is the largest natural lake in England, and is fed by numerous rivers. The Romans built their fort of GALAVA at its northern end (Waterhead), and it has always been an important waterway for movement of heavy materials. We will visit and travel through Bowness-on-Windermere – Lakeland’s most popular holiday resort – and an excellent centre for boating activities, with over 10,000 boats registered. Until March 2005 Windermere was the only lake without a speed limit, but a 10 mph limit has now been imposed. We then travel on north to Grasmere, probably Cumbria’s most popular village, thanks to William Wordsworth (1770-1850) spending much of his life there. Today Grasmere is totally given over to the tourist industry, with plenty of gift shops, and places to eat and stay. Most of the buildings date from the 19th or early 20th Century, though the farms around Grasmere are much older. The Church dates from the 13th Century and it is only a short walk to the lake, which provides superb views.

Lake Windermere Cruise

Starting from Haverthwaite, enjoy a 90 minute circular cruise around the south of Lake Windermere with fantastic views across the wooded shoreline and distant Lakeland fells.
