Whitehaven & Workington - Keswick & William Wordsworth’s Birthplace (half day)

Depart Whitehaven this morning for Keswick, located alongside the scenic shores of Derwentwater, considered to be one of England’s finest lakes. Keswick is main town for the northern half of the Lake District and on arrival there is time free to independently explore. Perhaps visit the Keswick Museum and Art Gallery, exhibiting manuscripts by Wordsworth and other lakeland writers and watercolour paintings. Alternatively, wander around the charming craft shops or perhaps buy woollens.

Upon leaving Keswick, journey to Wordsworth House; located in Cockermouth, itself a charming town of colour washed houses beside the river. A fine Georgian townhouse, William Wordsworth was born here in 1770 and several of the rooms still contain some of his personal effects. The lovely terraced garden is mentioned in his autobiographical poem The Prelude. Wander through the garden at leisure, as Wordsworth would have done over 200 years ago. Finally, return to Whitehaven, and to your ship
