The national park of Lake District is located in a northwest part of England in the County of Cumbria, he occupies nearly 2300 sq.km of the mountain territory with the numerous woods, hills, swamps and lakes. The largest lakes have names: Ullswater, Windermere, Derwent-Water and Bassenthwaite.
The national park is full of amazing landscapes and picturesque corners. It is considered that this area has served as the Lake-land prototype in works by J.R.R. Tolkien and also has been sung by a great number of artists and poets. There is even a concept "Lake School", including poets of the 18-19th centuries deriving there the inspiration. Such famous people as Coleridge and Wordsworth concern them.
Because of his big sizes to examine this national park in one day hardly it will turn out, it is better to spend for a trip several days, it is worth it. It is also necessary to be ready to long pedestrian routes: even if there is own car, routes in the park narrow, to leave the car on the road in few places it will turn out, and free parkings meet infrequently. And good photos won't appear a car window.
However you shouldn't think that the national park of Lake District is a far solitude without infrastructure: annually visits him to 15 million tourists so to find the place, where to have a bite and spend the night, it will be simple, especially if in advance to think of reservation.
It is heavy to answer this question unambiguously: there are ancient castles, the museums, the destroyed ancient fortresses and quiet coast of lakes with improbable types – everyone can find something for itself(himself). For approximate orientation by drawing up routes, it is possible to allocate several significant places which it will be interesting to almost any tourist to see:
As it was already told, it is not all list of interesting places, any tourist, having a little departed from the laid routes, will be able to find a new interesting corner.
It is possible to reach national park by train – from London to Undermir the train reaches in 4 hours. Or on the car – to the park from London it is possible to reach on the routes A1 - A66.
In the park for movements it is better to use own motor transport, there is an opportunity to travel regular buses and ferries, it is also possible to take the bicycle. But it is worth warning in advance: roads in the park rather narrow, very twisting, and in places abrupt — so bicycle walk will be difficult and on the car it is worth going extremely carefully.
National park of Lake District (Lake-land) — the most visited place in Great Britain. He is very loved not only Intourists, but also British. For full immersion in the atmosphere of this place it is better to avoid his visit on autumn and spring vacation of school students of Great Britain — from practice, in the park the biggest influx of tourists at this time. For the rest, it is pleasant to look at Leyk-Distrikt also in the summer when the park completely is buried in verdure, or in the fall as she adds to the nature of bright paints. In the winter mountain tops and hills are covered with snow, in the spring – young greens and hubbub of birds. Each season gives to this park the charm so it is possible to visit him again and again.
