IMPORTANT : Visiting the Lake District from London in a day means an early start from London Euston and we help you make the most of your time by picking up at Oxenholme station which is approx 30-40 mins drive time from Windermere. This means you have more time on tour, less time in transit and crucially will not miss your tour if your train is delayed.  We also return you to Oxenholme for your onward journey. You may wish to book a hotel within easy reach of Euston station.  

Book your train ticket online

Testimonials

Lake District Tours start with an unfair advantage. The Lake District is one of the most sublimely beautiful places I’ve seen.

Their service is attuned to the scenery. Rather than travelling in big impersonal coaches, it’s as if you’re being driven around by friends who’ve been looking forward to your visit so they can show you, and share with you, the special places they’ve come to love.

After five memorable and varied weeks overseas, we’re telling family and friends how the Lake District tour was the highlight.

 Thanks again – Don & Judy Lipscombe


Hi Andy,  

thank you very much for the great day out!!

Lake District is an amazing place, and am sure we will be returning there at some point :-) 

The tour was well organised....and your extra service of finding way with the delayed train especially appreciated.

Thank you once again! 

Irena
