您将游览的景点


温德米尔湖 (Lake Windermere) - 英格兰最美丽的一角,被誉为英国的后花园,英国人的心灵之乡,灵秀清幽的自然风光倾倒了无数浪漫的诗人。 您可以在这里乘坐游船,也可以沿着围绕湖泊的山间小径漫步,欣赏湖区美妙的风光,享受舒适惬意的湖滨体验。

奥斯湖 (Ullswater) - 奥斯湖是湖区的第二大湖,以宁静著称。相比于游客众多的温德米尔湖,奥斯湖才更是湖区真正的世外桃源。

艾拉瀑布 (Aira Force Waterfall) - 这里因为景色绝佳所以游客也络绎不绝, 从一条小路通向一座拱形的石头小桥,桥下是陡峭的山涧,周围绿树环绕。

Castlerigg石圈 (Castlerigg Stone Circle) - 石圈和伦敦郊区的巨石阵有些相似,还有些人甚至认为这 个石圈更加漂亮。

威廉·华兹华斯的故居鸽舍 (Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage) - 屋子里的陈设基本不曾变过,可以在这里重温当初他和家人在此居住的情景,华兹华斯就在这里完成了许多动人的诗篇,其中包括最著名的《水仙》。

德文特湖 (Derwent Water) - 德文特湖被誉为湖区最具田园风光的湖,这个美丽的湖泊曾被用为《星球大战-原力觉醒》的场景,然而激光和宇宙飞船似乎和这个宁静的地区毫不相关。

霍尼斯特山脉 (Honister Pass) - 参观游览石板矿,享受静谧的湖光山色。


您的旅程


在湖区你可能会变得很诗意,或者说变得很文艺。摄人心魄的湖光山色会让你不由自主的想要撰写诗歌来赞颂它的美丽。英国浪漫主义诗人威廉·华兹华斯 (William Wordsworth) 的故居鸽舍(Dove Cottage)是如此迷人,你会被19世纪生活方式的魅力感染,汲取无限的灵感。秀丽的湖光山色可以唤醒你的想象力。这趟旅程会让你发现,这片灵秀清幽的自然风光是如何倾倒了无数浪漫的诗人,作家和艺术家。

Wonderful three day tour of the lake district

Carol Posted on 07/06/2017

On a side note: this is a tour of the lake district that does not include a stop at Hadrians Wall. Had a fantastic time touring the lake district in mid May. Our guide was James and he was brilliant. Gave us the history of places along the way, interesting stories and how things are now. I love this sort of stuff so it was great. We had a small group and several of us stayed in the same accommodation. James was attentive and really took care of us. Great guide. We were lucky and had sunny weather for most of the trip (rained a bit on and off the last day). The lake district was so beautiful and scenic and peaceful. We had some good time off the coach for picture stops and to walk around, including areas where sheep were (there were a lot of sheep everywhere). Keswick was a good place to stay in (Yew Tree House BB - Bob was a fantastic host). Really thoroughly enjoyed this tour.

Thank You, Rabbie's.

We're a family of four from Singapore. We booked two tours with Rabbie's on the internet - the Whiskey & Highlands Tour (3 May) and the Lake District Tour (7 - 9 May). We are indeed delighted with the service we received from its two two resentatives, Alan and Mav respectively. Both gentlemen were knowledgeable, service-oriented and friendly. We learnt so much about your beautiful country from them. We had such a great time that we have already informed our friends and relatives back home to travel with Rabbie's when they visit Scotland. Well done Rabbie's!

Unforgettable journey.

Jenny Tang Posted on 06/11/2012

We joined 2D1N to Bath and Oxford, and 3D2N to Isle of Skye. It was very good! The place, the service provided by our tour guide cum driver, and etc. Especially to Isle of skye, We were constantly entertained by Gus throughout the journey with his music, story-telling, his driving skills, politeness, and etc. Everything is just so, so, so good!

Pete was an excellent guide, historian and storyteller

Marcus & Anette Schmidt Posted on 20/07/2012

We went on the 3 day tour to the Lake District and Hadrian's Wall with Pete. Pete was an excellent guide, historian and storyteller, and he made sure that we all had a fabulous tour.

Thank you

A great time! Hallo you all in Edinburgh. Sorry, I couldn't write earlier because work caught me faster than I had expected. My daughter Jana and me went on the 3 Day tour down to Hadrian's Wall and the Lake District. What a great tour with our guide Peter! He was very friendly, helpful and not bored by answering my endless questions. It was a tour through an amazing countryside, through Scottish history. We learned a lot and were able to recreate in places we would never have seen on our own. Autumn is a wonderful time: all the bright colours and the peaceful places without any hustle and bustle. Back to Edinburgh we had another day to spend. What to do because we saw a lot last year on our trips to the western Highlands and Loch Ness and on our stay in Edinburgh? Having passed your office, we decided to ask for a day tour. And we got one to St. Andrews. Thanks to Sarah who took us there and made our Scotland experience perfect. We are planning to come back next year to explore either the Isle of Skye or the Orkney Islands. Scotland has us calm in its hand.

Big 'thank you' to Ally

Monika Bowditch Posted on 03/09/2011

Wow –we had three wonderful days – 24 – 26 Aug. My sister and I have just returned from the 3 day English Lake District Tour with Ally. We admired Ally’s knowledge of the geology of the Lake District, the history and relevant dates, all told with a lot of humour. He is a mine of information, history, poetry, geology, music etc. We learned a lot and laughed a lot. It was great. The group consisted of a wide variety of nationalities and ages but Ally managed to get everybody involved and nobody felt ‘alone’. If you have not seen the English Lake District, book a tour with Rabbies and I can assure you that you will not be disappointed. A big thank you to Ally and to Rabbies. Hope to see you again next year.

常见问题

Do you offer hotel pickups in the departure cities?

The UK and Ireland's historic city centres are full of narrow streets and winding roads. So, to speed up your departure, we only pick up from our central meeting points. What's more is leaving the city using the most direct route also reduces the carbon footprint of our tours.

Is there parking close to the departure point?

We don't recommend bringing your car into the centre of our departure cities. It can be hard to find parking, and there are excellent public transportation services.

When should I get to the departure point?

Arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.

What happens if I'm late or miss the tour?

If you're late for your tour, our cancellation policy applies.

What are your cancellation policies?

We have a cancellation period of three days for our one day tours, and 21 days for longer tours. If cancelled outside this period, we'll give you a full refund minus a 10% admin charge. If you cancel inside this period, refunds are at our discretion. Click here to view full terms and conditions.

What is a guaranteed departure?

It's simple: you book, you go. This means we'll never cancel your tour because of a minimum numbers policy.

Can I pre-book a specific seat?

Due to logistical reasons, we're unable to let you pre-book a seat on the bus. But our comfortable 16-seat mini-coaches have huge windows. So, you'll always get a good view.

Are there toilets on the bus?

Unfortunately, we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you'll have regular comfort breaks.

How do you cater for people with accessibility needs?

We aim to accommodate everyone. To read more information on how we do this, click here to go to our accessibility guide.

Do you take children on your tours?

We regret we don't carry children under the age of five on our scheduled tours.

You can ask us about the tours we recommend for younger children. And if your child is less than 1.35m tall, you should let us know, so we can provide them with a suitable booster seat.

How much time do I get off the bus?

We want you to enjoy Britain and Ireland. And we believe the best way to do this is to get you off the mini-coach and out exploring. So, we give you plenty of time to take photos, go walking, and explore ancient ruins.

Why do you exclude visitor attractions?

We exclude visitor attractions in your tour price because it lets you travel your way. It means you can pamper yourself with a luxury lunch or skip an attraction whenever you feel like it.

Do we need to bring our own lunch?

You don't need to. We stop in small towns, villages, and rural eateries where you can choose whatever meal pleases both your taste buds and your budget.

Should I tip the driver-guide?

Let's be honest, our driver-guides would never refuse a cheeky bonus. But it's up to you, and the amount is entirely at your discretion.

What about travel insurance?

We advise you take out travel insurance.

What is ABTOT?

You're protected by ABTOT when you chose to let us reserve your accommodation on a multi-day tour. This means you can claim back anything you've paid us if we become bankrupt. Read our terms and conditions for more information.

I have more questions, who can help me?

If you have any more questions, call us on +44(0)131 226 3133, email tours@rabbies.com, or check out our full FAQs.
