    Our guides, Gillian and Tim, were knowledgeable, witty, entertaining, intellectual, and a delight to spend the day with. I can't praise them enough for the excellent adventure they took us on, bringing Wordsworth, his life, his work, his history, to life. Every step of the way,

    Many tours take you to Dove Cottage and Grasmere and think they have shown you Wordsworth. As you have discovered there are so many more locations that relate to his life in the Lakes and they are all important in his story. We are delighted at your enjoyment of our tour. For lovers of Wordsworth we do our best to fully immerse you in his world!
