The Lake District is England’s only true mountain region and contains some of the most stunningly beautiful scenery in the land. The valleys which radiate from the central massif of mountains contain long, deep, glacially formed lakes which provide a marvellous contrast to the spectacular peaks and give the area its name.

Whatever the weather, the English Lake District always has something to offer from the lakes, mountains and hills which give the area its outstanding beauty to the countless activities, interesting & unique shops and visitor attractions suitable for all the family.
