Kirkstone Pass Drive

The drive up the Kirkstone Pass from Patterdale to Ambleside is one of the most majestic cut throughs in the Northern Lake District connecting Ullswater to Windermere.  It is justifiably famous as a driving route and the Lakeland’s highest pass open to motor traffic.

Honister Pass Drive

The Honister Pass drive is a great one for combining with a visit to the Honister Slate Mines and their fantastically exciting zip line for those who love height and speed!  This is a beautiful journey linking Keswick and Derwentwater with Buttermere, Crummock Water and Loweswater.

Ullswater/Aira Force Drive

The drive along the West side of Ullswater is delightful with the Aira Force National Trust waterfall as a great stopping off point at about the halfway mark.
