Day 1 – We visit Skipton in the Yorkshire Dales before making our way to the borders. This popular, historic market town will look magnificent in the colours of autumn. Visit the 900-year old castle and soak up the Medieval charm.

Day 2 – After a leisurely breakfast we travel to Keswick, a pretty market town that offers a variety of shops, museums and cosy cafés for you to enjoy. A scenic drive follows as we make our way to The Lakes Distillery, where we have planned a tour and tasting for you, the detailed guided tour is designed to take you on a journey through the rich history of the distillery, and of course no tour would be complete without some spirit sampling! Enjoy up to 5 spirits in the atmospheric Cask Warehouse.

Day 3 – We spend the day in Carlisle, the historic border town situated by Hadrian’s wall. Head to the Historic Quarter with its unique mix of attractions including: Tullie House, Carlisle Castle, 900-year-old Carlisle Cathedral and Cumbria’s Museum of Military Life.

Day 4 – After some free time to explore Dumfries, we have included admission into Caerlaverock Castle. With its moat, twin towered gatehouse and imposing battlements, this awe-inspiring castle – although ruined – is the epitome of the medieval stronghold and one of the finest castles in Scotland. After exploring the castle perhaps enjoy some delicious home baking and freshly ground coffee in the tearoom before returning to our hotel.

Day 5 – We will enjoy a lunch stop in Lancaster before continuing home.
