Wordsworth 250: A long weekend following in the footsteps of William Wordsworth

Wordsworth 250: A long weekend following in the footsteps of William Wordsworth

An exclusive tour for William Wordsworth fans in the 250th year since his birth. No other tour company provides this sort of in-depth tour. We visit both the more obvious locations such as Dove Cottage but also some of the more difficult to find locations which we have researched extensively and are key to his inspiration later in life. You will be accompanied by an expert guide and we will stop at times to read relevant extracts from both "The Prelude", his autobiographical poem of his early life, as well as many of his other writings. You will be taken on guided tours at all of the places that we stop at as well as having some exclusive delights! This is an absolute must for any serious fan of William Wordsworth.
