Depart from your home area in the morning travelling to Lancashire
and arriving at the Holiday Inn Lancaster late afternoon.


Our destination today is the Yorkshire
Dales National Park where we first head for the
small village of Foulridge, near Colne and board
the ‘Marton Emperor’ for a relaxing cruise on
the Leeds/Liverpool canal. Afterwards we
continue into Yorkshire and the market town of
Settle, where we take a break with time to
obtain lunch. From Settle we head off into the
National Park which has spectacular scenery as
we make our way to Ribblehead with its famous
viaduct on the Settle/Carlisle Railway. We pass
mighty Ingleborough as we descend into
Ingleton and continue to Kirkby Lonsdale for a
break before returning to Lancaster.


Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before
the coach takes us into Lancaster, where we
have the morning to explore this fabulous and
intriguing city. You can visit the castle and hear
the nasty tale of the Pendle Witches and the
history of the region or maybe a stroll around
beautiful Williamson Park alternatively indulge
in some retail therapy in the towns centre or
take time to see why Lancaster is described as
“Small city, Big Story”. We also enjoy a cruise on
the Waterbus from Lancaster, crossing the River
Lune aqueduct and this delightful relaxing trip
is an ideal way of enjoying the countryside as
you glide gently along. Refreshments are
available on board and afterwards the coach
meets us and we return to the hotel.


Leaving the hotel we travel via Carnforth, Levens
Bridge and Newby Bridge to the southern tip of Lake
Windermere and Lakeside. Here we join the lake ‘steamer’ for a
delightful sail along the lake to Bowness-onWindermere, where we
take a break. From here we head over majestic Kirkstone Pass and
descend to the village of Glenridding. Where our
second cruise is along beautiful Lake Ullswater,
with spectacular views of Helvellyn and fantastic
scenery all around. Rejoining the coach at
Pooley Bridge we continue south over the Shap
Fells to Kendal and Lancaster.


After breakfast we leave and begin our
journey home.
