The North West is an area of exciting diversity, whether you’re looking for rural tranquillity or urban vitality, this region has it all.
Cumbria’s Lake District is the largest and most popular of England’s National Parks. The country’s highest mountain (Scafell Peak) and biggest and deepest lakes (Windermere and Wastwater) make up just a fraction of the area’s majestic scenery. It’s no wonder, then, that the awesome natural beauty of this region was an inspiration to the Romantic poets of the 18th century, most famously William Wordsworth. The North West’s biggest cities, Manchester and Liverpool, have both undergone great regeneration in the past 20 years and now offer the very best in cosmopolitan life and contemporary culture as well as being home to British music legends like Oasis and the Beatles!
Thrill seekers can head to the coast for a trip to Blackpool Pleasure Beach, the UK’s favourite tourist attraction, or a jaunt up the world-famous Blackpool Tower.
