The Lake District
The Lake District is a mountainous region in North West England. The Lake District National Park was established in 1951, covers and area of 2,362 square kilometres and is the most visited National Park in the UK. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2017.
A popular holiday destination, it is famous for its lakes, forests and mountains and its associations with William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin. With stunning landscapes, lakes, mountains, coastline and historic sites, there is plenty to see and do.
The Lake District is located entirely within the county of Cumbria. All the land in England higher than 3,000 feet (914 metres) above sea level lies within the Lake District National Park, including Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England. The Lake District also contains the deepest and largest natural lakes in England, Wast Water and Windermere.
