On Friday Great Landscapes Week celebrates SIGHT, and where better to do it than on this marvellous walk with fantastic views of Ullswater and surrounding landscape.

To celebrate the English Lake District becoming a World Heritage Site in the summer of 2017, join us at the end of Great Landscapes Week to immerse yourself in one of the most outstanding parts of our beautiful National Park.

We’ll start by sailing across Ullswater from Glenridding to Howtown, on one of the majestic Ullswater Steamers (special discounted rate). On our journey across the lake we’ll hear some fascinating facts about the area. We’ll then stroll, or skip or do a little jig depending on how we feel as we walk along the stunning lakeshore path back to Glenridding admiring the views and appreciating exactly why this special landscape is now internationally recognised as of World Heritage Site importance. On the way we can stop and enjoy an alfresco picnic, chat, make a star stick or a journey stick, maybe take the chance for a little swim (optional, if it takes your fancy).

The route is approximately 7 miles in length and we expect dusk/dark to fall before we reach the end so we’ll finish under the stars and moonlight (we hope) with torches and a chance to drink in the night time sounds, sights and smells of the great lake and its surrounding fells.
