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, Lake District and Beatrix Potter 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! Moving on, our next stop will be Hill Top, the home of Beatrix Potter. The setting for some of the celebrated author's Original Tales, Hill Top boasts a quaint building and lush gardens. Rediscover your childhood as you explore the Potter's charming house - it still contains some of her favourite things! 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.
