Tour of English Lake District


Tour Group on Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, Lake District

This evening, I am reprising a private tour of the English Lake District

First, we departed our lodgings and planned to go direct to Ravenglass via the Hardknott Pass. However, due to a navigation ‘glitch’ we drove through Langdale and Coniston then a south-westerly route to Ravanglass, near the coast. From here we went to visit Wast Water, England’s deepest lake. Once again we encountered sheep on the road.  We also observed various outdoor activities for youths in process.

After the visit to Wast Water and Wasdale Head we returned to Ravenglass to connect with the 1.50 pm narrow gauge steam trip to Dalegarth and back. This took about 1 hour 40 mins including stop at Dalegarth. This journey benefited from dry, sunny weather thus enhancing views of Eskdale.

Upon return to Ravenglass, we embarked on a trip to Ambleside via Hardknott and Wrynose passes. This proved an interesting experience, traversing wild and rugged landscape along very narrow and winding roads.
