About Lake District National Park

The Lake District is a region and national park in Cumbria in northwest England. A popular vacation destination, it’s known for its glacial ribbon lakes, rugged fell mountains and historic literary associations. Market towns such as Kendal, Ambleside, and Keswick on scenic Derwent water are bases for exploring the area and home to traditional inns, galleries of local art, and outdoor equipment shops.
Yorkshire Dales

The Yorkshire Dales is an upland area of the Pennines. The Dales comprises river valleys and the hills rising from the Vale of York westwards to the hilltops of the Pennine watershed. The extensive limestone cave systems are a major area for caving in the United Kingdom and numerous walking trails run through the hills and dales. Visitors are often attracted by the hiking trails, including some that lead to beautiful waterfalls and by the picturesque villages and small towns.
Windermere

Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. It is a ribbon lake formed in a glacial trough after the retreat of ice at the start of the current interglacial period. It has been one of the country's most popular places for holidays and summer homes.
Ullswater

Ullswater is the second largest lake in the English Lake District. The lake has been a popular tourist destination since the mid-18th century. Ullswater's attractions include the Ullswater "Steamers" which offer trips around the lake calling at Pooley Bridge, Glenridding, Howtown, and Aira Force. Ullswater is also a sailing location with several marinas around the lake. It is home to the Ullswater Yacht Club and the Lord Birkett Memorial Trophy, held annually on the first weekend in July.
Derwentwater

Derwentwater, or Derwent Water, is one of the principal bodies of water in the Lake District National Park in northwest England. Derwentwater is a place of considerable scenic value. It is surrounded by hills, and many of the slopes facing Derwentwater are extensively wooded. A regular passenger launch operates on the lake, taking passengers between various landing stages.

The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction

Visitors can explore the enchanting world that Beatrix Potter created in her little books as all 23 of the famous tales are brought to life, recreating the beautiful Lake District countryside complete with sights, sounds, and smells. The three-dimensional displays show how the Lakeland Farm Hill Top inspired some of Beatrix Potter’s most enduring illustrations.
Buttermere

Buttermere is a lake in the Lake District in North West England. The adjacent village of Buttermere takes its name from the lake. The classic combination of lakes and mountains has made this popular with visitors since the beginning of tourism in the Lake District. A visit to Buttermere is principally for its natural attractions as the area offers some of the best walking country in Lakeland.
Hill Top

Hill Top is a 17th-century house in Near Sawrey near Hawkshead, in the English county of Cumbria. It is an example of Lakeland vernacular architecture with random stone walls and slate roof. The house was once the home of children's author and illustrator Beatrix Potter who left it to the National Trust. It is open to the public as a writer's house museum, shown as Beatrix Potter herself would have known it.
Yorkshire Three Peaks

The mountains of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent are collectively known as the Three Peaks. The peaks, which form part of the Pennine range, encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble in the Yorkshire Dales National Park in the North of England. The Yorkshire Three Peaks is one of the great mountain challenges beginning at Horton in Ribblesdale climbing Pen-Y-Ghent before the long walk north to Whernside, returning over Ingleborough.
Castlerigg Stone Circle

The stone circle at Castlerigg is situated near Keswick in Cumbria, North West England. One of around 1,300 stone circles in the British Isles and Brittany, it was constructed as a part of a megalithic tradition that lasted from 3,300 to 900 BC, during the Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Ages. The plateau forms the raised centre of a natural amphitheatre created by the surrounding fells and from within the circle, it is possible to see some of the highest peaks in Cumbria: Helvellyn, Skiddaw, Grasmoor and Blencathra.
Aira Force

Aira Force is a beautiful waterfall set amongst ancient woodland and landscaped glades. The stream flowing over the waterfall is Aira Beck, which rises on the upper slopes of Stybarrow Dodd at a height of 2,362 feet and flows north-easterly before turning south, blocked by the high heather-covered slopes of Gowbarrow Fell. A small arched bridge spans the stream just as the beck goes over the falls giving views from the top.
