24th July - When you watch a British film - it is more than likely been filmed in the Peak District with its green rolling hills and stone walls. We did a great loop of the region and a 4 mile walk through the hedges and farmers paddocks in historical Tissington.
25th July - We left the Peak District and headed into Manchester. Our first stop was "the theatre of dreams" Old Trafford stadium home to Manchester United, where we did a tour around and through the stadium, taking a seat from all vantage points including the interchange bench, checked out the player's lounge and dressing rooms, the press gallery, the Berlin tunnel and the players entry tunnel to the field. We even saw the place where Posh and Becks met!! (what is a trip to England without celebrity spotting) We then headed into the city of Manchester where we meet up with Cath and took the Ferris wheel which looks over the city, before enjoying high tea at Harvey Nicholls. We then chilled the afternoon away at Malmaison enjoying a cocktail or two; finishing the day off with a cornerstone of English culture with our first Indian experience in Britain. We spent the night at Cath's place in Bollington just outside Manchester, a place with the highest pub to people ratio in Britain.
26th July - We left Cath's place that morning and headed to Bakewell, famous for the Bakewell tart and a roast dinner inside a gigantic Yorkshire pudding. So we tried both. We then drove up to the Lakes District and setup camp again. The scenery was really stunning with the contrast of the high green mountains and deep valleys
27th July - We camped in a great place right next to a river feeding the Lake . We took a looped drive around the District. Going down to Lake Windermere and then onto Wast water voted Britains best view. We also took a wlak around some waterfalls near Ullswater. We tried our first Cumberland sausage from Keswick - YUM. Perhaps the English can actually do some good cuisine :p
