Our Discovery Tours really get into the heart of the  countryside. These are sightseeing tours by minibus, visiting places not normally reached by a full-sized coach. Small groups and friendly leaders make this a great way to enjoy Britain at its best.

The rugged mountains of the northern Lake District form a dramatic backdrop to this holiday. Impressive mountain passes, wild and unspoilt areas will create a lasting impression.

Holiday highlights:

  • Wild and beautiful Borrowdale
  • Carlisle cathedral
  • Historic Cumbrian locations
  • And of course the lakes – of which we shall see many, including Derwentwater, Bassenthwaite, and Ennerdale, plus a traditional steamer cruise on Ullswater
