(Place to visit)
Explore The Lake District National Park
The Lake District National Park, tucked into the north west corner of England, hardly needs any introduction, such is its fame across the UK as one of the most beautiful spots in Britain. Whether you create an itinerary of activities for your holiday including everything from canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming and white water rafting or simply tie up your walking boots and set off on a random adventure, this place is hard to beat for sheer breathtaking beauty. Board a ferry to sail the splendid Lake Windermere, take the kids on a treetop trek at the Lake District Visitor Centre at Brockhole, set aside a day for water sports on Derwentwater, go skiing on Helvellyn or install yourself by a pub fireside for local ale and a hearty traditional Lakes dish. Look out for events and festivals that run through the year celebrating everything from food and drink to comedy and the arts too.
