Day Trip to Lake District by Rail Departure from Euston Station
Make your way to Euston Station for 8.00am, where you will meet your Golden Tours representative by the ticket office. The train leaves Euston station at 8.30am, arriving at stunning Oxenholme in the Lake District at 11.08am, where your guide will meet you on the platform.

Oxenholme and Lake District 
After you are taken to the vehicle that will be your transport for the rest of the day, it's time to hit the road and see the Lake District! You'll travel on winding country roads, through picturesque villages and past cute cottages.
Arriving in the Lake District you will travel to Windermere, where you will enjoy a cruise on England's largest Lake. The panoramic views from the lake are spectacular towards the Lakeland Mountains, so make sure you don't forget your camera!

The day continues with a visit to the charming village of Hawkshead, a medieval settlement originally owned by the monks of Furness Abbey. Its church dates back to 1300, and famed poet Wordsworth studied at Hawkshead's grammar school!

Before making our way back to Windermere you will have the chance to enjoy some fresh country air during a photo stop at Tarn Hows. This is a beautiful and peaceful setting with Mountains in the background. You may even see some of the famous Herdwick Sheep grazing.

Cream Tea at Lindeth Howe ? Family Home of Beatrix Potter
You will enjoy a deliciously British cream tea at Beatrix Potter's family home, Lindeth Howe. A four star classic Lakeland country house hotel in Bowness, Lindeth Howe is set in 6 acres of its own private garden. Tuck in to fresh clotted cream, jam and scones in this beautiful setting.

Your guide will escort you to the train station for your return journey back to London. You will leave Oxenholme at 6.30pm, arriving at Euston Station at 9.24pm. (Departure times on Saturdays may vary, so please refer to your welcome pack on the day.)
