The Lake DistrictThe Lake District
A unique tapestry of mountains, lakes & tarns
The Lake District is England's largest National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site AND home to the highest mountain (Scafell Pike), longest lake (Windermere) and deepest lake in the country (Wastwater). The national park’s unique landscape is the product of geographical processes over the last 500 million years.
You might have noticed that it rains a lot here. This, combined with extra deep glacial valleys and volcanic rock that doesn’t allow the water to seep away, is the reason there are so many lakes and tarns.
An unrivalled list of things to see & do
Dotted around this peaceful - and photogenic part of the world are many historic towns and villages, vast farmland, ancient dry-stone walls, and so much more. If you’re heading here for an adventure or to get back to nature - you can walk, hike, hire a boat, camp.. the list is unrivalled.
If you like to eat and drink, there are many cosy pubs to treat yourself to a locally distilled beer (or something stronger), and if you want to stock up on local delicacies or gifts for loved ones, there are countless quaint little shops.
Don’t miss - If you haven’t already, try Kendal Mint Cake, a locally made energy-boosting snack enjoyed by hikers worldwide!
