Lake District Driver Guide Tour


Lakeland Inspiration - a Driver Guide Vacation

Inspire yourself, leave your cares behind on a fabulous trip through the stupendous scenery of England's Lake District. Winding your way through mountain passes and around rippling lakes, through huddled villages and higgledy-piggledy fields, the beauty that moved Lakeland's writers will move you too.

"...In the days that followed I lived in an ecstasy of delight. We walked entranced along the valleys and lakesides. I was bewitched by everything. The natives ..and their smiling faces reflected an inner peace and contentment as though their serene surroundings had permeated their philosophy of life." Alfred Wainwright (author and fell-wanderer 1907--1988 from his autobiography published on his 80th birthday.
