Nothing in Britain surpasses the grandeur of Lakeland’s central mountains. Our route is that fashioned by Emperor Hadrian’s Roman legions in the first century AD. Over the Wrynose and Hardknott passes, the steepest in England, pausing to view the extensive remains of Hardknott Roman Fort, before descending to lovely Eskdale. Following lunch we embark on the famous steam railway journey through Eskdale and onward to Wasdale and Wastwater (England’s deepest and most dramatic lake). Our next destination is the splendid 14th century castle of Muncaster, a treasure chest of fine period furniture, tapestries, silverware, paintings, portraits and porcelain. In its internationally acclaimed gardens you will find magnificent examples of azaleas, camelias and rhododendrons and also have the opportunity to visit the World Owl Trust. The beautiful scenery of the Coniston Fells and Coniston Water bring to an end this classic of all Lake District tours.
