THE LAKE DISTRICT NATIONAL PARK is the largest and most popular of the thirteen National Parks in England and Wales. Created as Britain’s first National Park in 1951, its role is to ‘conserve and enhance’ the natural beauty, wildlife and culture of this iconic English landscape, not just for today’s residents and visitors but for future generations, too.
Remarkably, the National Park contains every scrap of England’s land over 3,000 feet, including its highest mountain, Scafell Pike. Packed within the Park’s 885 square miles are numerous peaks and fells, over 400 lakes and tarns, around 50 dales, six National Nature Reserves, and more than 100 Sites of Special Scientific Interest — all publicly accessible on over 1,800 miles of footpaths and other rights of way. It’s no surprise then, that the Lake District attracts an estimated 15 million visitors a year. The Lake District National Park is widely recognised as a walkers’ paradise.
