The Lake District
A National Park for 60 years, the Lake District could be said to be the jewel in England’s crown. Sublime scenery is often one which contains a contrast, in this case the rugged fells set against the tranquil lakes and tarns. It’s a working landscape, produced almost as much by man and sheep as by geology. Only 30 miles wide by 40 miles long, there are very few other parts of the world which contain such a diversity of views in so small an area - and all of them wonderful!
