Attractions

The Lake District National Park

The Lake District National Park is the destination of millions of visitors each year. Some come to pursue the challenges of the mountains, or the pleasures of sailing, hiking and horse riding. Some come to visit its many and varied attractions, while others come to the events and festivals in the area. Many visit the picturesque towns and villages, and enjoy quiet lakeshore walks, and all who visit appreciate the grandeur of the scenery unique to Lakeland.
