Those into dog walking will have plenty to keep them occupied. Some of the best mountains are in this region, including Scafell Pike at 978 metres, Skiddaw at 931 metre and Great Gable at 899 metres.

You can’t go to the Lake District, though, and not visit its namesake. There are numerous lakes to visit. The biggest lake in the district is Bassenthwaite Lake, which is 4 miles long and ³⁄₄ miles wide. It’s shallow, so it’s perfect for wading, splashing and for children’s play. If you’re more interested in a lake that’s deeper and therefore suitable for water sports and the likes, Lake Windermere is more for you.

If you are visiting Lake Windermere, you’re going to want to go to The World of Beatrix Potter museum, a tourist attraction dedicated to this iconic British children’s writer who brought the likes of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny to life from this part of England.
