About the Lake District National Park
The Lake District is recognised as one of the treasures of the British landscape, and it's not hard to see why with its mix of tranquil lakes, majestic mountains, tarns and rivers, ancient woodlands, mountains, farmland, fells and picturesque towns and villages. The Lakes just have it all.
If you're looking for outdoor activity, the Lake District has the highest concentration of outdoor activity centres in the UK, and is a honeypot for walking, cycling, and fell running. The Lakes themselves offer sailing, pleasure trips, kayaking and outdoor swimming. The tranquillity of the fells, valleys and lakes gives a sense of space and freedom, and even in the busier summer months it's still possible to get away from it all.
The landscape reflects a long history of settlement with many traces of prehistoric archaeological monuments including stone circles such as Castlerigg stone circle, Roman roads and forts, and evidence of Cumbrias more recent industrial history such as mineral and slate mining. Dry stone walls, hedgerows and ages-old practices of hill-farming make a landscape found nowhere else in Britain.
You’ll find every landmark, house, river, viewpoint, hill, pub and right of way clearly marked. So whatever your outdoor interests, from cycling and sailing, to horse riding and kayaking, the OS Explorer map set of the Lake District will help you get the most out of your days out and outward bound holidays.
