A travel guide book with a difference which gives a well planned 4 day, 2 location tour (by car) through the spectacular scenery of the English Lake District. This illustrated ebook gives directions, maps, location information & travel tips.
This tour takes the reader through the Lake District National Park and visits: Kendal, Lake Windermere, Hawkshead, Coniston Water, Coniston, Duddon Valley, Broughton-In–Furness, Ulverston, Dalton-In-Furness, Furness Abbey, Barrow –In-Furness, Swinside Stone Circle, Millom, Bootle, Ravenglass, Whitehaven, Workington, Maryport, Cockermouth, Keswick, Dunmail Raise, Grasmere, Ambleside, Windermere & Bowness On Windermere.
In these hard times do you fancy going on a “weekend jaunt” to cheer yourself up, touring around some of the attractions this lovely country of ours has to offer, staying in multiple locations, but thought it too hard to organise?
Or perhaps you are planning a first trip to Britain, and are looking for a short tour to give you a taste of what Britain has to offer, outside of London?
Are you looking for a new kind of travel/guide book? Perhaps one which gives:
•A well planned 4 day multiple location tour around the English Lake District, which you can customise and enjoy at your own pace.
•Detailed information on how to organise your own weekend jaunt (travel, accommodation, visitor attractions, location history and information, etc.)
•Tips on how to keep costs down whist away and website addresses to visit to obtain best value for money deals, promotions and discount vouchers.
•Some tour destinations and attractions which are a little different to those normally on offer, some of which are “off the beaten track” and are not covered in other guides
•Gives daily itinerary’s to maximise the time spent in each location which you can follow, or tailor to suit yourself
•Has maps, pictures and information on locations and attractions (including address, opening times, web address, how to get there, history &/or other pertinent information)
•All the information required in one book rather than having to purchase and carry, several city /town different guides whilst on your Grand Tour
•Is suitable for all age groups and nationalities (particularly long haul visitors wishing to see as much of Britain as they can in a limited timescale, but not wanting to join a group arranged tour).
•Armchair traveller information and website addresses to enable them to “virtually” undertake the tour and visit attractions on line, if they cannot visit them in person.
If so ... this could be the ebook for you!

Which is partly the reason why her “Grand Tour” "City Breaks" and "British Weekend Jaunt" books are so useful. She has been fortunate to travel extensively in Europe and lived in Brittany, France during the mid 1980’s. Caroline currently lives in the North of England.She very much hopes you will enjoy her eBooks and have as much fun on your “Grand Tours” "City Breaks" and "British Weekend Jaunts" as she did on hers; and that her collector books help those starting out with their collections.

Chapter 1 – British Weekend Jaunts (At Petit Cost!) Overview

This ebook is a chapter from my larger book British Weekend Jaunts (At Petit Cost!) and has been produced to enable readers to purchase an individual tour from the book which they can take with them, and refer to, whilst on tour.

The ebook was written at the request of my friends and colleagues who asked me for details of short holidays I had put together for myself within the UK, as they too wanted a different kind of holiday from those currently on offer. With the current economic climate more of us are choosing to holiday at home and wanting to discover, sometimes for the first time, some of the beautiful cities and locations Britain has to offer. I also felt that my travel books may be of use to some of the many international visitors coming to Britain in 2012 for the Olympic Games and who wish to stay a few days longer to see something of this lovely country of ours.

This particular tour starts and ends in the UK and uses the travellers own means of transport, so international travellers wishing to follow the tour will also have to factor in airfare and car hire costs to their overall financial calculations.

The complete book British Weekend Jaunts (At Petit Cost!) comprises of the following six Weekend Jaunts and visits the British Cities, Towns and areas shown below. I hope, if this eBook is successful, to publish all of the tours as separate ebooks as well as new titles in the series:-

* Tour 1 – 4 Days Touring Snowdonia & the Llŷn Peninsula, North Wales

* Tour 2 – 4 Days Touring The English Lake District, Cumbria

* Tour 3 – 2 Days Discovering The Pendle Witch Trail (Pendle & Lancaster)

* Tour 4 – 3 Days Touring The Cotswolds

* Tour 5 – 3 Days Touring Bristol, Bath & North Somerset

* Tour 6 – 3 Days Touring The North Yorkshire Coast

I feel the tours in the Weekend Jaunts (At Petit Cost!) series of ebooks are a breath of fresh air in that:

* Unlike some other travel books the individual tours were all planned and conducted on a very tight budget, using discount accommodation deals, promotions and vouchers, all of which would appeal to today’s cost conscious viewers.

* Each tour is multi locational and puts together destinations you may not normally find together; additionally some of the tours visit sites and other attractions which are off the beaten track and not usually visited by tourists giving a holiday which is a little different. A couple of the tours also have underlying themes i.e. following in the footsteps of the Romans or short picturesque steam train journeys.

* For the inexperienced traveller sites and attractions at each location within the tour are grouped together, ensuring that maximum cost and timescale benefits are achieved.

* It gives the viewer information on how to put together a Weekend Jaunt themselves (including transportation, accommodation, venues to visit, venue information and the best web sites to consult, etc) and how to customise a tour to their own requirements.

* The tours are suitable to all age groups and nationalities (particularly long haul visitors wishing to see as much of Britain as they can in a limited timescale, but not wanting to join a group arranged tour).

* The tours can be made by Single travellers, couples, families and group travellers as well as people working within the travel industry looking for different ideas. Additionally virtual travellers can follow the tours from their armchairs by looking up the cities/towns, attractions and venues on their computer should they wish.

* The tours do not have to be taken over a weekend and can start and finish on any day you choose. Additionally the tours can be undertaken at any time of year although if taking them between October and March please bear in mind the British weather conditions and reduced daylight hours.

One thing to bear in mind if you feel a little phased about putting together your own Weekend Jaunt, pick somewhere easy to start with in an area which you feel comfortable with and don’t forget that part of the fun is in the planning and getting to your destinations.

If you enjoy this tour and would like a longer holiday, particularly abroad, you may also be interested in my "Grand European Tours (At Petit Cost!) series of tours which are also currently available as ebooks in the following titles:

* Tour 1 – Welsh Marches, Shrewsbury, Wye Valley, Hereford & Monmouth & Birmingham (this Tour also includes Church Stretton, Ludlow, Leominster, Ledbury, Hay On Wye, Ross On Wye, Raglan Castle, Chepstow, Tintern Abbey, Castell Coch and Cardiff).

* Tour 2 – Paris & The Towns & Cities of Catalonia (this tour also includes Lloret de Mar, Pineda De Mar, Blanes, Girona, Tossa Del Mar, Reus and Barcelona)

* Tour 3 – Liverpool (Beatles Theme), Oslo, Prague, Budapest & Glasgow

* Tour 4 – Paris & Châteaux, Venice, Rome, Sorrento & Amalfi Coast (this tour also includes the Château of Versailles, the Château de Fontainebleau, Burano, Murano, Lido, Naples, Herculaneum, Pompeii, Amalfi, Positano and Capri)

* Tour 5 – Cologne, Cities & Towns of the Rhine, Berlin & London (this tour also includes Koblenz, Dusseldorf, Ahr Valley, Remagen, Schloss Augustenburg, Bonn, Phantasialand Theme Park Brühl and includes short picturesque journeys by train)

* Tour 6 – Liverpool, Berlin, St Petersburg, Riga & Stockholm (this tour also includes Peterhof and the Catherine & Alexander Palaces at Pushkin (formerly known as Tsarskoe Selo))

Chapter 2 – Introduction To Tour

If like me, you are an independent traveller who seeks adventure, adores culture, antiquities, history and getting value for money, you may find the following multi location holiday itinerary of interest. I put this itinerary together for myself and found it to be one of the most enjoyable holidays I have ever had. I found that visiting a place for a short time gives me a taste of that place and helped me decide whether or not to return for a longer future stay. I find some places have the right feeling for me and I feel comfortable and at home in them, others I must admit, despite several visits, I cannot take to. You, I am sure, will experience this for yourself as you explore.

I travelled alone on this tour, but there is no reason why couples, families or groups could not undertake it. I have also included the postcodes for the attractions I visited, in case you have satellite navigation.

You can make the tour as cheap or expensive as you wish by your own choice of accommodation, restaurants and methods of transport. To assist, as I guide, I have mentioned the accommodations and transport facilities I used, you of course are at liberty to use or amend
