The Lake District UK’s No 1 Destination

The Lake District has been named the UK’s top destination on Lonely Planet’s new international ‘Ultimate Travel List’.

The prestigious international travel guide has ranked hundreds of what it calls “unmissable global travel experiences” around the world.

The Lake District came top of the UK list along with Hadrian’s Wall who came in at number 13th most essential destination.

Acknowledgment of both of Cumbria’s World Heritage Site speaks volumes for the region.

Furthermore, the Lake District boasts the highest number of Michelin stars anywhere north of London – making Cumbria a true food-lovers paradise.

With Cumbria’s wide-open spaces provide the perfect environment for a visit based on relaxation, health and wellbeing.

Additionally, the county has a lively, vibrant culture and arts sector made famous by the famous Lake District writers such as Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth.

The Lake District is also home to the deepest lake and highest mountain in England.

So, if want to see the fastest creature on the planet or the UK’s biggest mammal, or even one of the creatures with the thickest fur on Earth the Lake District is a good place to start.

Peregrine falcons had almost disappeared from Cumbria by the 1960s, but are now staging a comeback. The herd of red deer at Martindale on the south-east shore of Ullswater is one of the oldest in England. Red squirrels can be spotted on the lake fringes.

The whole area gives endless opportunities for adventure and fun in the great outdoors.
