On this trip you’ll have the chance to explore the World of Beatrix Potter attraction in Bowness-on-Windermere where the 23 magical tales by the author are brought to life with the sights and sounds of the various characters. Meet your favourites, Squirrel Nutkin, Mrs. Tiggywinkle and Mr. Tod and of course, Peter Rabbit.

We’ll also take in beautiful Lake Windermere on a lake cruise, enjoy a trip along the River Leven on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway and have a fabulous cream tea at Lindeth Howe Hotel.

The Local Area

Included Excursions

Full Day: Lake District

Today we’ll be treated to an excursion travelling through lush countryside to discover the charm and beauty of the glorious Lake District. We’ll then enjoy free time to explore delightful Bowness, situated on the shores of Lake Windermere and with plenty of fantastic attractions and things to do to be found here. We also visit Grasmere, home to William Wordsworth for over 14 years, who called it, “the loveliest spot that man hath ever found."


Full Day: World of Beatrix Potter

We take a hop, skip and a jump to the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, where you can experience all her magical tales brought to life. Many of the authors favourite characters are brought to life in 3D and the Peter Rabbit Garden tells the story of Beatrix Potter’s love for nature and captures the essence of her world. Following this we take a lake cruise, one of the best ways to truly appreciate this fabulous landscape. We finish off our excursion with afternoon tea at the Lindeth Howe Hotel.
