THE LAKE DISTRICT
CUMBRIA
HADRIAN’S WALL

The Lake District is unique in England. Nowhere else has this wonderful combination of hills, lakes and countryside.

Deeply rural, its heritage is a mixture of traditional industries and sheep-farming.  Most of the old industries are gone but sheep still graze the fields and fells.


The World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall is a must-see attraction for those interested in our Roman heritage.

The wider county of Cumbria is endowed with picturesque villages, ruined castles, beautiful river valleys and quirky, independent towns.  

A personal tour will show you highlights and hidden gems.

Discover the stories behind the characters who contributed so much to the landscape we see today.

Follow in the footsteps of William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter.  

Discover gems from the Arts & Crafts Movement.

Enjoy guided walks exploring the history of the region and soaking up its natural beauty.
