Welcome to tours of the Lake District, Hadrian’s Wall and Cumbria with ‘Discover Lakeland’

Hello!  My name is Anna Gray and I am a qualified Blue Badge Tourist Guide offering friendly and informative guided tours of Cumbria, the Lake District and Hadrian’s Wall.

With a background in environmental interpretation, I can honestly claim to know Cumbria and the Lake District in some detail – its rich history and heritage, geology and industry, culture and traditions, people and wildlife, and its hidden treasures and quirky curiosities!   www.annagray.co.uk

I am the author of recent booklets on ‘Romans in Cumbria’ and ‘Solway’s Built Heritage’ and have produced heritage leaflets for Carlisle, Penrith, Appleby, Kirkby Stephen, Alston and Borrowdale (Lake District) as well as interpretation panels for Penrith, Appleby, Great Asby and Newbiggin.

I look forward to sharing my passion for Cumbria and the Lake District with you on a personalised guided tour!
