Touring the Lake District

Jim Watson


A unique guide to exploring the best of Lakeland by car. The eight inspirational tours contained in the book visit not only heavyweight tourist centres, but also out of the way places which many consider to be the “real Lake District”.

The routes are around 15-36 miles long, which allows time to visit attractions, stroll round pretty villages, and enjoy the many magnificent lake and fell views for which the region is famous.
You’ll be guided through a variety of picturesque valleys, negotiate steep mountain passes, visit the homes of Lakeland icons and sample the delights of the many gastropubs and restaurants for which the region is increasingly praised.

‘Touring The Lake District’ gives you the best and most comprehensive portrait of this varied and delightful area.
