15 million people visit the Lake District every year and it’s not hard to see why! A stunning mountainous region in the northwestern county of Cumbria, the Lake District is home to Scafell Pike – England’s highest mountain – and several picturesque stone-built market towns such as Kendal and Perinth. The Lake District offers an alpine-like landscape with sixteen lakes squeezed between the country’s highest mountains, glistening water, dramatic valleys, and quaint villages. Romantic poets, such as William Wordsworth, arrived in the region during the 19th century and its picture-perfect mountainous landscape have since continued to inspire its visitors. Apart from its natural beauty and literary value, the Lake District also offers an abundance of outdoor activities such as beautiful lake cruises and inspiring mountain walks!
