What else is on?

A spectacular Lake District itinerary 

Full of famous spots and hidden gems, here's what you'll come across on your journey to the Lake District with BusyBus.

Castlerigg Stone Circle

A superb example of a Neolithic stone circle set in the breath-taking scenery of the Lake District with a view of a number of the surrounding mountains and hills. Stand in the centre of the circle and feel the mystical energy flow from the ground up through your body.

Grasmere

Most of the buildings date from the 19th or early 20th Century, though the Church dates from the 13th Century. William Wordsworth, who died in 1850, and his wife Mary, who died 9 years later, have tombstone in the churchyard of St Oswald’s Church, one of the most visited literary shrines in the world.

Sarah Nelson's Gingerbread Shop

This tiny, aroma-flooded quaint shop with happy costumed staff is neatly tucked away at the corner of the churchyard. You’ll browse through, soak up the history, and then sample this most wonderful delicacy before lloading yourself up with bags of the stuff to distribute proudly to your friends (if it lasts that long)!

Little & Great Landales

The Langdales is a superb home to some of the most dramatic and diverse scenery in the whole of Cumbria (if not Britain!) hosting some of the most photogenic scenery around. Weather permitting we will drive the “loop” of “Little Switzerland” and even take a walk on one of Alfred Wainwright's Pictoral Walks work up an appetite (for food or more scenery!)

Ambleside

Ambleside is a large Victorian home with some interesting historical residents - the Romans. Grew rapidly when the ferry terminal opened in 1845. St Mary’s Church (1854) was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott. The 17th Century Bridge House over Stock Ghyll is one of the most photographed scenes in Lakeland. The following locations are all accessible and can be substituted for any of the above at short notice by the driver/guide if weather or traffic conditions dictate.

Bowness & Boat Launch

Cumbria’s most popular sprawling town developed after the opening of the railway line from Oxenholme and Kendal to Windermere in 1847. Home to a glorious lakeside boat launch. Here you can hop on the optional Lake Windermere Lake Cruise for a trip of a lifetime (£10.00 / $13).

New Dungeon Ghyll Pub

This welcoming family-owned oasis with a passion for friendly and quality service offers an excellent breather for our weary travellers. The well-stocked and great value menu will tempt your palate as will the local brew and mysterious legends.

Dove Cottage

A home of William Wordsworth from December 1799 to May 1808, the years of his supreme work as a poet. Built in the early 17th century as a small hostelry with an oak-panelled hall and floors of Westmorland slate

Rydal Mount

Glorious views of Rydal Water and the surrounding fells can be enjoyed from this home of William Wordsworth from 1813 to 1850 . It now belongs to the descendants of the poet laureate and is also the starting point for the scenic coffin trail walk linking Rydal Mount with Dove Cottage.

Windermere

Originally called Birthwaite built around its railway station offering train and bus connections to the surrounding area. Often referred to as the “Capital” of the Lake District with its bustling shops and many hotels – all build from local materials.
