Welcome to Walking Weekends.
Join us on Saturday 29th April 2017 for a day out in Bowness-on-Windermere, the busy and picturesque heart of the Lake District.
All you need to do is book your place for a 8:45am coach pickup (Depart 9:00am - Arrive 9:00pm) from the car park at Batley Enterprise Centre, 513 Bradford Road, Batley, WF17 8LL
Bowness-on-Windermere is a sprawling tourist town on the shore of Windermere, about halfway along the 12 mile length of the lake between Waterhead at the North end, and Lakeside at the South end. It developed after the opening of the railway line from Oxenholme and Kendal to Windermere in 1847. Bowness was the nearest accessible point on the lake. Now Cumbria’s most popular destination, the town is busy for much of the year. People come to enjoy the lake for sailing and watersports, or just to relax and enjoy the atmosphere of the area and the town’s delightful setting.

Further Information: We send an email to the address you signed up with (please ensure you use the correct email) on the Wednesday or Thursday before the walk. This includes a summary of everything you are expected to know for the walk itself.
Lunch Breaks and Toilets Stops: We always try to include a lunch break on every walk. This is not always possible so ensure you bring at least a snack with you in case it’s a little late in the day when we break. We always include as many toilet stops as possible on the day. Not every coach has a usable toilet on board.
Walking and Hiking: The weather can be unpredictable on high ground even in summer. Wear suitable clothing. Every walk includes a lot of walking. Please ensure you wear shoes you are comfortable to walk a lot in.
Departure Point: We only offer one departure point. This is to ensure we spend the maximum amount of time travelling. We have chosen a point that is roughly central with safe, secure car parking.
Travel with Children: Some of our walks are not necessarily well catered for children. If you are planning on bringing any family with you you are highly advised to get in touch before booking. We can best advise if this is a good idea or not based on your requirements. We cannot hold any part of the walk for any one individual but we may be able to offer you a plan for doing the tour by yourself.
Travel for those with Limited Mobility and Disabilities: For any traveller with additional requirements regarding mobility, disabilities or any condition you feel you should inform us of before travel, we always recommend you get in touch. We would love to best accommodate you. In some circumstances you will not get the full benefit of the tour but we can always try to adapt some or all aspects to suit you. If we cannot then we can usually offer ideas for doing the walk yourself, often with detailed plans. Get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
Children under 16 years old must be accompanied by a responsible person aged 16 or over or will be refused travel. Proof of age may be required.
