Recently back from a 3-day tour to Lake District from Manchester by Rabbies. The pristine beauty of the Lakes , the Mountains ,the Mist and Meadows has left me spellbound. Our tour guide Dominic had exceptional driving skills and was also very knowledgeable. He shared a lot of info on the geological and historical aspects of the Lake District, along with fantastic stories of associations of Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and Coleridge with this region. He even made a short stop to take pictures of the cows and sheep in the grasslands which I found was a cute gesture. The connectivity by train was very nicely arranged . This is my 4th tour with Rabbies and have always found them very satisfactory in all aspects. I definitely recommend this tour in particular because of the panoramic beauty of the place and the famous associations it has.

Your tour departs from either Manchester Airport Railway Station or Manchester Piccadilly Railway Station. From either of these stations, you take the train to Penrith Railway Station where your guide and mini-coach will be waiting for you. On the last day of your tour, your driver-guide takes you back to Penrith, where you catch the train back to the station you departed from.
Depending on where your Manchester accommodation is located, there are several ways to get to the stations. You can easily access the station using the tram network, local buses, or a taxi.
If you’re travelling from Manchester Airport Railway Station, your train departs at 10.59. If you’re travelling from Manchester Piccadilly Railway Station, your train departs at 11.22. We recommend you arrive at the station at least 40 minutes before your departure in case there are delays on your journey. Leaving plenty of time also gives you a chance to collect your tickets and purchase refreshments. Your ticket is only valid on the 10.59 (Airport) or the 11.22 (Piccadilly) departure. If you miss this train, you’re responsible for purchasing new tickets for the next departure
At the train station, insert any credit or debit card into one of the self-service ticket machines and enter the Ticket Collection Reference Number in the email we send you. If you have problems with this, please go to a manned ticket window with your booking confirmation. Allow 20 minutes for ticket collection and ensure you collect all the tickets for your journey. Once you’ve collected your train ticket, it’s non-amendable and non-refundable unless the service is cancelled or delayed.
In most cases, you have pre-assigned and reserved seats. The details are provided on your tickets. If you booked your ticket within one week of departure, you may not have a seating reservation. But don’t worry, there are usually plenty of unreserved seats available.
Each train has a café on board which provides a selection of food and drinks. If you require anything in particular, we recommend you pick up what you need from one of shops at Euston Station.
The platform changes every day. Please keep an eye on the departure boards in the main terminal. From Manchester Airport Railway Station, your train is the 10.59 service for Glasgow Central. From Manchester Piccadilly Railway Station, your train is the 11.22 service for Glasgow Central. The platform will be announced about 15 – 20mins before departure. The departure gates close five minutes before the train leaves, so please make your way to the train once you’ve seen which platform the train is departing from.
If your train is delayed by more than 15 minutes or cancelled, please seek advice on the status of your journey from a railway staff member. Once informed, please contact us and we’ll help arrange public transport alternatives. Depending on the circumstances and transport options, your itinerary may be rearranged to bring you to an alternative meeting point. If this happens, we’ll provide compensation for any missed portion of your tour.
The train takes just under two hours.
Your Rabbie’s Guide will meet you at Penrith Station with the other guests who started the tour in Edinburgh or London. Penrith Station is small, and you’ll easily find them. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the guide may not be at the bus stop to meet you. Don’t worry, they’ll be there as soon as possible. If you have problems finding your bus, just give us a call on +44(0)131 226 3133.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We advise you take out travel insurance. You can click here for excellent rates.
