Walks in the Lake District National Park

The Lake District National Park


The Lake District National Park is a mountainous region and national park in Cumbria, North West England. It's famous for its stunning landscape, including its lakes, its coast, and the Cumbrian Mountains. The Lake District is also known for its literary associations with Beatrix Potter, William Wordsworth, and other Lake Poets.

The park is named for its 16 principal lakes, but there are many more bodies of water scattered throughout the region. Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. Other well-known lakes include Ullswater, Derwentwater, and Coniston Water.

The Cumbrian Mountains, also known as the "Fells" are the only mountains in England. Scafell Pike is the highest mountain in England at 978 meters (3,209 ft). Helvellyn, Skiddaw, and Scafell are other notable peaks.

The Lake District has been a muse for many famous writers, including William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Robert Southey, and Beatrix Potter. Their homes and favorite spots are popular tourist destinations.

Walks in the Lake District will appear here in the future.
