LAKE DISTRICT

The Lake District, also known as the Lakes or Lakeland, is a mountainous region in North West England. A popular holiday destination, it is famous for its lakes, forests and mountains (or fells), and its associations with William Wordsworth and other Lake Poets and also with Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin.

The National Park was established in 1951 and covers an area of 2,362 square kilometres. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2017.

Around The Lakes

No matter how you want to enjoy the area, you can walk, cycle, swing in the trees and splash about here to your heart’s content! With 12 of the largest lakes in England and 3,105 kilometres of rights of way, this is truly one of Britain’s breathing spaces.

Ridiculously windy #winter weather on fells, meant a lot of #beach running this week. Still, the wind caused some interesting sand formations. #Runtagit #NotJustLakes #LakeDistrict @TheWaysideUK #Strava

#CumbriaDay is coming so we wanted to share some facts! Did you know that the history of the humble pencil started in Cumbria, where shepherds used to use graphite to mark their sheep? So when you’re next doodling think of us! #theplacetobe
