Our excursion today takes us to Keswick and the Northern Lakes – we travel alongside Ullswater to Ambleside, continuing alongside Thirlmere and Bassenthwaite Lake to Keswick, capital of the Northern

The Mountain Goat minibuses take us on our High Adventure, reaching parts of the Lake District inaccessible by coach.
