In the North West corner of England sits the English Lake District, known simply as "The Lakes" or "Lakeland".
The National Park was established in 1951 and covers over 900 square miles, over 2000 square kilometres.
In 2017 it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site
It is a place that has inspired poets, writers, painters is popular with hikers, climbers, sailors, swimmers and those seeking respite from the daily grind
Situated at its southern end about 1.5-2h from Manchester nd Liverpool and from it's Northern end about 2-2.5h from Edinburgh, Scotland and with good access by road and rail, there is every reason to visit.
I can show you some of the best bits as well as the curious and less visited parts.
