‘The earth is all before me’, declared Wordsworth in joy when he found himself walking alone towards Grasmere in 1799, and it was here that he made his home. Discover the village as he knew it, see the places he lived and wrote about, and visit his grave in the churchyard.

This walk is graded easy and is 3.7 miles (6km), which should take approximately 2 hours.  Appropriate footwear is advised.

Cost: free, parking charges apply
