The Lake District with its stunning mountains, verdant valleys, and picturesque lakes, has been immortalized time and again by poets through the ages. England’s largest national park, this idyllic UNESCO World Heritage site promises you a range of outdoor pursuits and unique experiences. Visual treats await you everywhere you turn, including serene Lake Windermere, nestled amid rolling valleys and towering mountains in the distance. Dotted by quaint villages, this is also home to The World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness – a theme park with interactive displays featuring Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-Duck, as well as the author’s charming home. There’s also Dove Cottage to be explored, the residence turned museum of celebrated poet William Wordsworth, where he composed some of his life’s best work! One of the country’s most popular summer destinations, the Lake District is criss-crossed by walking trails and quaint little spots that invite you in for leisurely picnics. Those seeking adventure could also take a trip to Helvellyn, the third highest peak in England, or Honister Slate Mine which offers a zipline.
