The Lake District is the UK's largest National Park, and its dramatic scenery, with high peaks of rugged mountains and desolate fells affording panorama views; the natural beauty of lakes and tarns; bustling towns and enchanting villages; not to mention the superb array of visitor attractions and truly world class hotels, make The Lakes one of the country's most popular holiday locations. The Lake District has a rich and fascinating history, and has inspired British literature for centuries; names such as William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter are synonymous with the area. The real charm of the colourful landscape is the way it is constantly changing throughout the year, from the blossoming of spring and the rich green palette of summer to the golden browns of autumn and snow topped mountains in winter.
The region contains some of the country's most spectacular scenery. Concentrated in an area of just 900 square miles are the tallest peaks, the deepest valleys and the longest lakes in England; artefacts of fascinating geological events that carved out this celebrated landscape millions of years ago, and an unspoilt view that has changed little since the end of the Ice Age 10,000 years ago.
500 million years ago the land that was to become the Lake District was sediment under the Iapetus Ocean. The collision of two continents made the ocean retreat and magma from the earth's mantle cooled into volcanic rock. During the Ice Age, glaciers gouged out the valleys and basins in the rock while the summits were sculpted by frost. When the glaciers retreated, the melt waters formed the lakes and tarns and plant life colonised the rich earth. The Lake District was born, and comprises 16 major lakes, ranging in size from the vast Windermere to tiny Brothers Water. Towering above them are mountains in excess of 3000ft tall, including Scafell Pike, England's highest peak. The mountains are separated by England's highest mountain passes, six of which carry roads climbing to over 1000ft, including the challenging Kirkstone Pass and Hardknott Pass. Footpaths climb still higher, reaching 2000ft over Esk Hause, Sticks Pass and Nan Bield Pass.
