What’s On In

The Lake District is the largest of the United Kingdom's National Parks, and contains 16 lakes (and many smaller tarns), more than 150 high peaks, with four over 3000 feet (the only mountains in England), (including England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike – 3206 ft). Visit the Lake District National Park for sights like no other. Take it all in on a traditional steamboat chugging through tranquil lakes, or scale the highest mountains England has to offer and enjoy a jaw-dropping view. From the top of Scafell Pike it’s easy to see how Cumbria’s lakes captivated William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter.

Much of the tourist activity is in the southern half of the region, where most of the historic literary attractions lie, while the quieter north's natural features are more appreciated by hikers and nature lovers. The Lake District has an extensive range of things to do with a selection of adventures and activities.
