Guide to the Lake District

Guide to the
Lake District

Of all the National Parks in England and Wales,

the Lake District is the one that stands out.

It's the largest by area and is home to England's highest mountain (Scafell Pike) and its deepest lake (Wastwater). It attracts around 40 per cent more visitors each year than any other National Park in the UK, earning more income from tourism than any other as a result.

Our comprehensive guide to the Lake District will show you exactly what's on offer.
