Lake District

In England’s north western corner lies ancient Cumbria and the timeless landscapes of the Lake District. This is where modern tourism was born, in the shimmering lakes and hushed mountains whose radiant beauty inspired poets and painters to turn nature into art. To enable us to make the most of this spectacular and awe inspiring place, we are going on a weekend trip, which should be a brilliant opprtunity to explore this beautiful landscape and well worth coming on if you can.

Our central location in Grasmere will give you prime access to England's largest National Park, home to Scafell Pike, England's highest peak at 978m, as well as its deepest lake, Wastwater, with a depth of 79m. It is likely to be an amazing trip, and is certainly an amazing place, which I hope you will get the chance to enjoy :)
