Su viaje


Quizá se note un poco romántico en el Distrito de los Lagos.

Los lagos son tan encantadores que inventarás versos sobre su belleza. William Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage es tan fascinante que le recordará al estilo de vida del siglo XIX. Y las montañas son tan magníficas que le saldrán poemas sobre sus cumbres escarpadas y suaves laderas.

Esta excursión incluye un viaje en tren de regreso desde London Euston a Penrith. Y a su llegada a Penrith, su chofer-guía se encontrará con usted y lo llevará a través de lo mejor del Distrito de los Lagos.

Realice este recorrido y descubrirá por qué esta encantadora área inspiró a los mejores poetas y escritores de Inglaterra.

Itinerario

Día 1

  • Explore las antiguas ruinas del castillo de Penrith
  • Tome todas las fotografías que pueda en el "lago más bello de Inglaterra", Ullswater
  • Relájese en la ciudad comercial de Keswick

Saldrá de la estación Euston de Londres y se dirigirá hacia el norte, al histórico mercado de Cumbrian, ciudad de Penrith. Aquí tendrá la oportunidad de disfrutar del almuerzo y explorar las imponentes ruinas del castillo de Penrith. Este castillo de color único jugó un papel clave en la defensa de la frontera de la invasión de los escoceses.

Después del almuerzo llegaremos al Parque Nacional del Distrito de los Lagos y viajamos a lo largo de la costa norte de Ullswater. Este lago a menudo se describe como el lago más hermoso de Inglaterra, y es aquí donde le damos la oportunidad de dar un paseo por el bosque y ver la poderosa cascada de Aira Force.

Después viajaremos hacia Keswick, haciendo una parada fuera de la ciudad para visitar las misteriosas piedras en pie de Castlerigg, que se cree que fueron construidas hace más de 5.000 años y que alguna vez fue un animado centro de antiguos rituales paganos.

Será un viaje corto a la animada ciudad comercial de Keswick, donde le dejaremos en su alojamiento y tendrá la libertad de explorar la ciudad.

(Durante los meses de julio y principios de agosto puede que este tour pernocte Windermere).

Día 2

  • Contemple con asombro las vistas del lago Windermere en un viaje en bote (opcional)
  • Pasee por el acogedor pueblo de Hawkeshead
  • Sumérjase en el mundo de William Wordsmith en su Dove Cottage y Daffodil Garden

Después del desayuno, disfrutará de las vistas del lago Ullswater mientras nos dirigimos hacia la costa sur del país.

Continuaremos más hacia el sur y viajaremos por el estrecho y sinuoso paso Kirkstone hacia el encantador lago Windermere. Aquí tendrá la opción de tomar un crucero por el lago, sin prisa, o almorzar mientras disfruta de vistas sublimes del paisaje circundante.

Después del almuerzo, viaja por el extremo sur de Windermere y continúa hacia Coniston Water. Su próxima parada es el pintoresco pueblo de conservación de Hawkeshead, donde el poeta William Wordsworth asistió a la Escuela de Gramática.

Después de explorar la acogedora aldea, tomaremos las carreteras rurales hacia el norte, en dirección a Grasmere, que William Wordsworth describió como "el lugar más hermoso que el hombre ha encontrado".

Habrá tiempo libre para visitar la Dove Cottage de Wordsworth o disfrutar de la paz y la tranquilidad del Jardín Wordsworth Daffodil junto al río Rothy. Al final de la tarde, regresaremos a Keswick.

Día 3

  • Ponga su mirada en las vistas panorámicas desde lo alto del paso de montaña Whinlatter.
  • Aprenda sobre las minas de pizarra en el paso de montaña Honister

Los recogemos de su alojamiento y nos dirigimos hacia Whinlatter Forest Park y Whinlatter Pass hacia los paisajes más espectaculares que Lake District tiene para ofrecer.

Viajará a través de sinuosas calles por las orillas de Crummock Water y Buttermere, y hacia el paso de montaña Honister.

Al detenerse entre las montañas tendrá la oportunidad de visitar viejos trabajos de pizarra, donde un pequeño número de cumbrianos continúa ganándose la vida.

Después de un refrigerio, continuará por los bosques de Borrowdale, pasando por Derwent Water, donde habrá tiempo libre para almorzar y comprar.

Una vez que haya almorzado, se dirigirá a la estación de Penrith. Su guía lo dejará en la estación, donde tomará el tren de regreso a la estación London Euston.

What time does the train depart?

The train departs London’s Euston Station at 9.30. We recommend you arrive by 8.45 in case there are delays on your journey.

If you miss the train, you will be responsible for purchasing new tickets for the next departure.


Where do I collect my tickets?

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. If they’re unable to assist, please call the Virgin Business TOD Helpdesk on 0121 2990259.

Once you’ve collected your train ticket, it’s non-amendable and non-refundable unless the service is cancelled or delayed.


Do we have reserved seats?

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.


Can I buy food and drink on the train?

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.


Which platform does the train leave from?

The platform changes every day. Your train’s destination is Penrith Station. Please watch the electronic departure board for notification of your platform. 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.


What happens if the train is cancelled?

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.

If you have problems finding your bus, just give us a call on +44(0)131 226 3133.


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.
