Cumbria & Lake District


From 16 sparkling lakes and England’s highest mountains, to sheltered valleys, heather moorlands and salty seascapes.

The area has a rich heritage to discover, a vibrant and contemporary cultural scene, and a growing reputation for fine food and drink. And on top of all this, there is a huge choice of tourist activities in some of the greatest Great Outdoors in the world.

Don’t miss:

· The ‘Steamers’ for creating the perfect opportunity to combine a cruise with some of the most famous and spectacular walks in the lake District
· Dove Cottage and the Wordsworth Museum. This hub of art, literature and creativity has a programme of exhibitions and events from craft workshops, poetry readings and free children’s activities.
· The world of Beatrix Potter, All 23 Peter Rabbit tales are brought to life in three-dimensions, in a magical indoor recreation
· The town of Keswick, located at the north of Lake Derwent Water, is an ideal home base from which explore the area
· Make sure to get early morning and afetrsunset shots. These times are called the “golden hour” or “magic hour” because these are the time of the day to capture stunning light and colour effects.
