Dotted with meres and soaring peaks (including Wordsworth's very own 'hosts of nodding daffodils' in spring), the Lake District has inspired artists and writers for centuries.
While the countryside is the star of the show, there's plenty of attractions to enjoy, too. Visit Beatrix Potter's home, Wordsworth's old school, or watch birds of prey swooping overhead at Muncaster Castle. Travelling with children? The Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Railway offers a Harry Potter-esque adventure kids will love.
