Tour of the Lake District

Cumbria

137 km / 85 miles
An updated version of the original tour devised by Jim Reid.

The circular route starts at Ambleside and passes through Coniston, Eskdale, Wasdale and Buttermere before heading north east to Keswick. It then heads south, through Rosthwaite to Grasmere; across to Patterdale and thence back to Ambleside.

There are also five high-level alternative routes that take the walker over the region's main peaks and a prologue from Windermere train station to Ambleside.
