Press Release: December 02, 2009
The Wainwright walks have been popularised by Julia Bradbury who often stays at the Skiddaw Hotel when filming in the Lake District. This unique package is set to appeal to walking fans who enjoy bracing walks, fresh air, beautiful surroundings and a touch of glamour too!
The package gives the final bidder and a friend the chance to join presenter Julia Bradbury and the production team from Skyworks TV for a days walking in the Lake District some time next year.
The guests will spend the first night as special guests at the Skiddaw Hotel in Keswick, before walking in the footsteps of the famous walker Alfred Wainwright. The walk may be filmed for TV broadcast, but at the very least, the winning pair will have their own private film of their walk - as well as signed DVDs photos and memorabilia from the series.
Kevin Curran, General Manager of the Skiddaw Hotel, part of the Lake District Hotels Ltd group said The hotel is very popular for walking holidays and we already have a walking break named after Julia Bradbury and Wainwright - it includes a copy of Wainwrights Northern Fells book and a bathroom experience pack for relaxing after a days walking on the fells!
Julia likes to stay with us when she is filming in the Lake District, so we were delighted when she mentioned the opportunity to link in with Terry Wogans Want Money cant buy auction. Fingers crossed for the bidding on Monday morning.
