You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ullswater and Wordsworth House and Garden. Get in touch with nature at Alpacaly Ever After and Helvellyn. Go for a jaunt from Portinscale to Seathwaite to see Scafell Pike Mountain about 32 minutes away.

Plan my trip to Portinscale with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

North Bay, Canada to Portinscale is an approximately 21-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Greenwich Mean Time, which is usually a 5 hour difference. Traveling from North Bay in May, expect nights in Portinscale to be somewhat warmer, around 11°C, while days are little chillier, around 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Grange-over-Sands.
