Introducing Lake District
This beautiful national park combines soaring mountains, plunging waterfalls and serene lakes with character filled charming villages creating a landscape which has inspired poets, writers and artists for years. It's a walkers paradise with a never ending supply of mountain walking with stunning views around every corner. At the heart of South Lakeland is Windermere, England's longest lake, a real hive of activity and a paradise for watersports enthusiasts. Keswick is the main centre in the north of the park. Nestled on the shores of Derwentwater, at the foot of the imposing Mount Skiddaw, there are a wide array of shops, restaurants and galleries in the town, and a plethora of walks and water based activities to be done nearby.
