Discover The Lake District

Discover The Lake District

Learn more about the beauty of Cumbria and the Lake District; from the popular South Lakes to the quiet northern beach villages. You can find breathtaking vistas, melancholy falls, and glossy lakes,  all within a few hours of England’s biggest cities.

Explore the beautiful Lake District

This picturesque section of the country is ideal for getting back to nature, and outdoor enthusiasts have been lured here for decades to stroll and walk across the stunning alpine environment.

Climb through tranquil woods to take in the breathtaking vistas, or enjoy a sail on one of the region’s many famous lakes.

It’s no surprise that the Lake District has so many literary ties, given its inspiring landscape. See if you can discover a ‘host of golden daffodils’ dancing in the lakeside air, as described by William Wordsworth, the great poet whose name has been permanently associated with the area’s grandeur.

A visit to Hilltop, the house of famed children’s author Beatrix Potter, allows you to revisit the enchanting tales of Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddleduck.
