Welcome to Walks in The Lake District


Good afternoon!


View to Rydal Water Welcome to a walking site devoted to The Lake District, an area of breathtaking scenery, market towns and charming sleepy villages. The walks on the site vary from leisurely strolls by rivers and lakes to more daunting day treks taking you to the summits of England's highest mountains. Each walk includes detailed instructions of the route, where to park, length of the walk, grade of the walk with numerous photographs along the way.


The Lake District has many unique characteristics which have made it so popular with tourists and walker alike for over 100 years: the tranquil splendour of its incomparable lakes; the majestic grandeur of its rugged mountains and fells; its green pastures and peaceful dales; and its lonely tarns and mountain passes.


View through Patterdale to Ullswater The fascinating beauty of the scenery has been the inspiration of poets, writers and artists over the years from Arthur Ransome, William and Dorothy Wordsworth to Beatrix Potter and from John Ruskin to Heaton Cooper. Many of their works and the places where they used to live can still be seen today. For the rainy days there are numerous attractions, museums and shops: The Brockhole National Park Visitors Centre, Windermere steamboats and the Laurel and Hardy Museum to name but a few!

Why not make a weekend or even a week's break out of your walk. With over 2,500 places to stay, eat, drink, shop and attractions to visit listed on the site, there is something to suit everyone.

The view down towards Grasmere The walks are mainly concentrated in The Lake District itself, but the site also covers walks from Arnside in Morecambe Bay to the South, up to Silloth on the Solway Firth in the North, and over to the Howgills and Appleby-in-Westmorland in the East.

The further information sections includes essential information on safety, equipment and useful telephone numbers - please ensure you are familiar with what is included in this section. Also here you will find sections on worthwhile organisations and a feedback form - your views of this site and ideas for further walks are always welcome.

With more walks and features added to the site every month, what are you waiting for?

Get out there and start walking!
