Situated between towering Skiddaw and the gentle beauty of Derwentwater, this English market town offers a wide range of attractions for visitor, from shops and restaurants to museums and boat trips around the lake.

Ashness Bridge

Ashness Bridge is a stone built bridge which has lovely views across Borrowdale to Skiddaw. The bridge itself is a popular subject for photographers and was probably a packhorse bridge originally.

Surprise View

Surprise View is a popular tourist spot at the top of a cliff, from where you can view the full extent of Derwentwater and even beyond to Bassenthwaite Lake.

Honister Slate Mine

Travelling across Honister Pass we head for Buttermere in the Western Lake District. Together with nearby Crummock Water, they were formerly one post-glacial lake. Buttermere means "the lake by the dairy pastures" and it is a very picturesque spot, the valley being surrounded by a range of world famous mountains.

"My wife and I have been travelling to England for many years and we have travelled almost exclusively with Brook Tours. David has guided us on tours and facilitated our arrivals and departures from airports since he took the business over from his father. He is always punctual, courteous and very safe in his operation of his vehicles. He has shown us the many treasures of the Lake District and has taken us on hikes and to country homes and castles and wonderful local restaurants. He is extremely knowledgeable and accommodating and will always do his best to make your trip the best. During all these years of travel I have never had an unpleasant experience with David Brook. It is without any reservation whatsoever that I highly recomend David Brook for all of your touring and general transportation needs while visiting one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Enjoy the Lake District at your own pace."
