    Coniston and the Langdales is a very popular tour as it visits an area of the Lake District not covered by our 8 Lakes or Ultimate tours. The views across the Langdale Valley are stunning as you note and it is always fun to visit Brantwood and marvel at how lucky John Ruskin was to buy such a place.

    Thank you so much for your kind words about this tour. We love to show people around the Lake District and talk about the many famous people who have lived or visited here. Their influence on the world is quite surprising!

    Being able to show you the story of Bluebird and and Donald Campbell's speed records on Coniston was great. The museum has some fabulous items and the views on the tour were fantastic.
