Programme one travels the Cumbrian Coast, from Morecambe Bay in the south to the vast Solway Estuary in the north, exploring the towns, castles and sights along the way. Next, climb aboard for a thrilling ride through the Lake District, land of mountains and meres, for an Eagle's Eye view of this beautiful region.

Then it's off up the Pennines, from the Ribblehead Viaduct to Kielder Water, visiting historic towns like Kendal, Appleby and Penrith, before cruising Hadrian's Wall from Haltwhistle to the Solway, with a stop at the Great Border City of Carlisle.
North of the Border we travel coast to coast, beginning at the southernmost tip of Scotland, the Mull of Galloway. Fly east along this undiscovered coastline with its magnificent bays, inlets and soft rolling hills, before visiting Dumfries, the Queen of the South, with its connections to Scotland's Bard Robert Burns, and Gretna, the Romantic Capital of the World. Then catch your breath before continuing onwards, north and east through the Debatable Lands, scene of Centuries of fighting between the English and Scots.
