10.000 Years in the making! The Lake District, home to England’s largest natural lake and highest mountain, has joined the likes of the Grand Canyon, the Taj Mahal and Machu Picchu by being awarded Unesco World Heritage status. Come and visit the Lakes for yourself and be inspired by the unique ‘cultural landscape’ which has won this special global recognition.
The Lake District may once have been regarded as a summer destination, but this certainly isn't the case anymore! With cosy pubs, a calendar of winter events, and plenty of attractions remaining open throughout the season, there's never been a better time to take a well-deserved break in the Lakes.
The winter sunrises and sunsets can be spectacular in the Lakes and what better way to enjoy the snow-covered peaks than to get out on a brisk and refreshing walk in the company of family and friends. Whether you're a keen walker or a complete hiking novice, there's something in the Lake District for every taste and ability. After that invigorating walk, you deserve nothing more than to recharge those batteries. Sitting by a roaring fire in a tearoom or traditional Lakeland pub – Sticky Toffee Pudding or a pint of Cumberland Ale. The choice is yours.
