Want to arrange an inspirational school rugby tour for your team, but without the cost of travelling abroad? The Lake District could be perfect for you, where the spectacular scenery is more like Italy than the North of England.

There is fantastic depth of rugby, ensuring your team have the very best sporting experience. On your school rugby tour to the Lake District you’ll enjoy the very best that northern hospitality has to offer and will stay in accommodation right on the shores of Lake Windermere.

When you’re not on the pitch you’ll enjoy some exciting outdoor activities, such as kayaking, via ferrata and river scrambling.
