Places to Visit in the Lake District
The most popular area to visit in the Lake District is the area around Windermere. This is also known as the South Lakes and is slightly more accessible from the south of England. The area around Keswick and Derwentwater, or North Lakes, is an extremely close second in popularity.
The East Lakes includes the beautiful lake Ullswater and the Penrith Area. The West Lakes is pretty and unspoiled and includes the Eskdale Valley and Wastwater, voted England’s favourite view. Both the east and west Lakes are recently becoming more popular places to visit in the Lake District.
