about the lake district
The Lake District is the UKs second oldest National Park and contains England’s highest hill, deepest lake and longest and biggest lake. it is this combination of hills and lakes that forms the basis of the beautiful scenery that the Lake District National Park is famous for.
The Lake District is also now a UNESCO World Heritage Site
The lakes offer the perfect location for a cruise on a boat of which there are scheduled services on Windermere, Ullswater, Coniston and Derwentwater each with distinctive boats covering the whole of their respective lake.
To compliment the lakes and create the scenery, for which the Lake District is famous, the surrounding hills containing all the land in England over 3,000 feet above sea level are a majestic backdrop to beautiful views throughout the region. There is no better place for exploring and adventures.
Nestled amongst the hills and lakes are many small towns and villages packed with interesting things to see and do including Amblreside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Keswick and Patterdale to name but a very few. Whilst the Lake District is the most populated national park in the UK it is also the most diverse in terms of things to see and do.
