Day One

Commence from your home pick-up point in the morning and travel to Lancashire arriving at your hotel mid-afternoon, time to relax before dinner.

 

Day Two

Our destination today is the Yorkshire Dales National Park, first we head for the small village of Foulridge, near Colne, where we board the ‘Marton Emperor’ for a relaxing cruise on the Leeds/Liverpool canal.  Later we continue into Yorkshire and the market town of Settle, where we take a break and have time to obtain lunch.  From Settle we head off into the National Park and some spectacular scenery as we make for Ribblehead and the famous viaduct on the Settle/Carlisle Railway.  We pass might Ingleborough as we descend into Ingleton and continue to Kirkby Lonsdale for a break before returning to Lancaster.

 

Day Three

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before the coach takes us into Lancaster, where we have the morning to explore, a visit to Lancaster Castle to hear the nasty tale of the Pendle Witches and the history of the region is one option or maybe a stroll around beautiful Williamson Park, or indulge in some retail therapy in the town centre.  During the day we enjoy a cruise on the Waterbus from Lancaster, crossing the River Lune aqueduct.  This is a delightful relaxing trip and an ideal way of enjoying the countryside as you glide gently along.  Refreshments are available on board and afterwards the coach meets us and we return to the hotel.

 

Day Four

Leaving the hotel, we travel via Carnforth, Levens Bridge and Newby Bridge to the southern tip of Lake Windermere and Lakeside, here we join the lake ‘steamer’ for a delightful sail along the lake to Bowness-on-Windermere, where we take a break.  From here we head over majestic Kirkstone Pass and descend to the village of Glenridding.  Our second cruise along the beautiful Lake Ullswater, with spectacular views of Helvellyn, and fantastic scenery all around.  Re-joining the coach at Pooley Bridge we continue south over the Shap Fells to Kendal and Lancaster.
