"The Beautiful Lakes" Lake District National Park by littlebush
Lake District National Park Travel Guide: 487 reviews and 1,306 photos
Well, I often slag this country off but recently I've decided to explore more of my own country before I leave , and this was my first trip to the 'Lakes', in August 2005, and I take some of my slagging off back, we do have some nice scenery here.
I went up for a long weekend in August 2005, weather wasnt great but the walking and scenery was.
I stayed at Wasdale Head in the south west. The scenery is spectacular, the lakes beautiful, and the walking great. I climbed Skafell Pike, Englands highest point at 978m, plus another challening peak nearby.
I will defaintelty go back for more!
I also stopped by Windermere and Kendal, 2 of teh big towns in the park, but didnt think much to them - very touristy, where as Wasdale is very remote!
The beaches near the lakes, ie-Seascale are deserted although not great.
This is arguably Englands best scenery - I'd argue very hard for that title!
Endless walking........soooo many walks, just walk walk walk! With Scafell Pike being Englands highest mountain at 978m,... more travel advice
