Park and Explore with Stagecoach

Park your car and explore by bus!

There's an even bigger reason for you to visit the Lake District now its  a  UNESCO World Heritage site  and we know that getting here by car can be the quickest and easiest way to get here. But when you arrive, exploring is so much easier and cheaper when you travel by bus and we've got just the ticket.

With Park and Explore, a family of 5 can park a car all day and travel by bus to popular attractions in the  Central Lakes zone  for just £18.
