Journey north to the Lake District, arriving during the afternoon. Tonight, enjoy a festive evening dinner


A free morning to explore Keswick. Browse some of the interesting and individual shops before taking lunch in one of the many cafés. In the afternoon, we enjoy a short cruise on Derwentwater to enjoy the views. Tonight, there is the OPTION of booking seats at the Theatre on the Lake for this year's Festive Season Play 'The Secret Garden' - Synopsis: The spoilt Mary Lennox is sent to live with her uncle in a huge lonely house in the middle of the Yorkshire Moors. While she is there she discovers a garden and makes two surprising friends and the three of them bring life and joy back to the home.


Each year in the South Lakeland market town of Ulverston, the historic cobbled streets are filled with seasonal cheer as locals & visitors dress in Dickensian costume. Traditional Cumbrian crafts, street entertainers, brass bands, youth theatre, stilt walkers, fire eaters, jugglers and street organs are all expected to entertain visitors throughout the weekend.


Departing after breakfast we enjoy a journey over the breathtaking Kirkstone Pass pausing in Bowness-on-Windermere prior to returning home during the afternoon.
