Attractions in and around the Lake District
England's largest National Park provides the perfect environment for a host of activities from rock climbing and parascending to more gentler activities such as a boat trip on lake Windermere, England’s longest lake. Boasting Scafell Pike – England’s highest mountain, and Wastwater – England’s deepest lake 'The Lakes' offers some of the UK’s most stunning scenery, inspiring artists such as Turner and Ruskin to some of the country’s best loved writers, such as William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. With such a wealth of beauty, culture and hospitality it isn’t hard to see why the Lake District remains the perfect setting to explore and enjoy.
