Take this journey on a beautiful and clear day on top of the high Coniston fells of the Lake District, with our #GetOutside Champion Hilary Tomlinson. This is as close as we can get to heaven on earth!
The Lake District National Park is a place that is at the heart of English countryside. It contains 19 major lakes, has the tallest mountain in England (Scafell Pike at 978m), the deepest lake in Wastwater and the longest lake in Windermere. The dramatic scenery of the Lake District is credited with inspiring writers and poets such as Wordsworth, Coleridge and Keats.
It's size and location means there are a huge number of activities available to visitors both on and off the lakes. The town of Keswick provides a hub for many visitors to the Lake District. It's traditional high street and ever-changing lake views make is a great place to visit or stay.
