Lake DistrictLake District
Discover the glorious Lake District in Cumbria, an area of outstanding natural beauty with stunning scenery, abundant wildlife, clear, shimmering lakes and rugged mountains.
England’s largest National Park, this beautiful region is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the country’s favourite places for enjoying the outdoors. Lose yourself in the breathtaking landscapes, with a panorama of striking mountains and crags, lush green farmland, rolling fells, thriving woodland, all home to native animals and plants, and idyllic market towns and picturesque villages. The Lake District is also home to England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike (3,206ft) and its largest lake, Lake Windermere.
On the eastern banks of Lake Windermere lies Bowness-on-Windermere, a bustling town that enjoys lovely panoramic views of the lake, plenty of gift shops to browse and quaint cafés and tea rooms to enjoy.
The picturesque village of Grasmere is nestled at the foot of some spectacular fells. This popular village offers plenty of gift shops, art galleries, cafés, tearooms and pubs as well as its own tranquil lake. Home to the poet William Wordsworth for several years, you can visit the Wordsworth Museum or find his grave in the church yard. Grasmere is also renowned for its unique gingerbread, sold from a tiny shop in the village.
The pretty market town of Keswick is sandwiched between tranquil Derwentwater and spectacular Skiddaw, England’s sixth- highest mountain. You may like to browse the unique Derwent Pencil Museum, home of the first pencil and the Cumberland Pencil Company, or the fascinating Keswick Museum & Art Gallery, which houses a local history collection and original manuscripts from the famous Lake poets. There are also plenty of shops and quaint cafés to enjoy in the pedestrianised Market Square.
The picturesque market town of Kendal is known as ‘the southern gateway to the Lakes’. Home of the famous Kendal mint cake, the town also has a fine selection of shops, pubs and restaurants as well as two castles and museums.
