Lake District National Park

The Lake District is situated in Cumbria and is England’s largest National Park.

Known for its mountainous landscape, rugged coastline and lakes, the area attracts over 12 million visitors a year and is home to over 40,000 people. Home to highest mountain, Scafell Pike, and longest and deepest lakes, Wastwater and Windermere, in England, the landscape of the Lake District spans from lush rolling valleys to tidal estuaries and rocky crags. Rare wildlife such as vendace fish, red squirrels and ospreys share the area with climbers, canoeists, horse riders and cyclists, with over 3,000km of public rights of way.
