The Lake District is England’s largest National Park and contains the country’s highest peak, Scafell Pike and its deepest lake, Wastwater. Towering mountains fall away into rugged fells which plunge into deep valleys and all around the region are dotted shining silver lakes in all shapes and sizes. This stunningly beautiful and unique landscape was formed by glaciers which melted millions of years ago and, when you step foot in the Lake District, it is easy to appreciate the ancient majesty of the land around you.
Over the years Lakes have attracted eminent literary figures, due to the inspiring nature of its remarkable natural beauty, and writers such as Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth have become famous fixtures of the region’s history. Today, as well as its staggering natural splendour, numerous towns and villages thrive in the Lake District, bringing with them fantastic food, drink and hospitality.
Whether you choose to explore on foot or take to the water on a luxurious lake cruise, there is no doubt that every visitor will be enchanted by the Lake District.
