Ever changing, each season has something incredibly special to offer. In the spring the panorama bursts into life with lush green pastures alive with playful lambs and in the autumn, the trees ablaze with colour making it incredibly photogenic. The summer months attract visitors to the hills, bustling villages and lakes. Whilst the winter months are warming and welcoming with the breath taking snow capped mountains and friendly Lakeland pubs serving hearty traditional food with a roaring fire crackling in the background.

One of the country’s largest outdoor playgrounds, the Lake District attracts outdoor enthusiasts of all types who visit to enjoy incredible walking opportunities, climbing, sailing, mountain biking, kayaking and winter mountaineering to name just a few.
