The Lake District - England’s largest National Park, is a region recognised for its mind-blowing beauty, iconic wildlife, rich cultural heritage and eye-catching landscapes. A cluster of historic mountain peaks known as ‘fells’, astounding valleys and lakes, ancient woodlands and forests and raw coastlines have formed this region.
Packed with award winning attractions, the Lake District will have something for everyone’s taste. Whether it’s exploring the works of several famous poets who took inspiration from this region, or participate in one of many outdoor activities for thrill seekers, all interests are considered.
The well admired area of Windermere is the Lake Districts most famous town, surrounded by picturesque mountain peaks and panoramic views of the lake and fells. This stunning place was once home to the extremely talented Beatrix Potter.
The Lake Districts hidden gem – Ullswater, is known to be fairly unspoilt by tourism and commercialism. This serene area is popular with fell walkers who flock to explore it’s mountains such as Hellvellyn and the Aira Force waterfalls. With its rich history dating back to 1955 with the world water speed record, this second largest lake has tons of water sport activities.
