Discover The Lake District United Kingdom

The landscape in the Lake District is among the most popular in England. Located northeast of Manchester, the Lake District National Park has an abundance of lakes in an area filled with medium-sized mountains. Mounts Skiddaw and Helvellyn reach just under 3280 ft at their peak. Several of the lakes are used for water sports; notably Derwent Water and the Thirlmere. Trekkers, meanwhile, would be wise to follow one of the many walking itineraries proposed by the local council. The walk that crosses the Saint John Valley is exceptionally beautiful. Don't forget to visit the Castlerigg standing stones, also found in the area.
