We travel along the remains of Hadrian's Wall, built 2000 years ago by the Roman Empire. From here we make our way in to the Lake District National Park in Cumbria and the lively town of Keswick, your base for the next two days.
The Lake District is the pride of England and every corner of it is delightful - the haunt of some of England's greatest artists and poets.
You will spend the day exploring the wild mountain passes, rose-covered lanes, quaint timeless villages and of course, the delightful lakes of this magical landscape.
In the afternoon, you can dive into the worlds of Willian Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter and the landscapes that inspired them.
We spend the morning in the northern lakes and visit some of the wilder mountain landscapes and fewer travelers lanes of the district.
We visit two beautiful lakes, Buttermere and Derwent Water before returning to Keswick for lunch.
We make our way back north, taking in the legends of Gretna Green, the famous bookshops of Wigtown and the high moorlands of Talla before reaching Edinburgh.
