One of the most famous holiday spots in the UK is the Lake District. The lake district national park is unrivaled for its scenic beauty and pictorial landscapes. It lies in the distant northwestern part of England. There are altogether sixteen lakes in this area, Windemere is the largest one while Elterwater is the smallest one. Other than lakes there are other water reservoirs in this region as well such as tarns and other aquifers.
Lake district gained its popularity after the mid of 19th century when the railway came to Windermere in 1847. The Lake District is also world renown for its connections with the famous English poets William Wordsworth & Beatrix Potter. Moreover, you can still visit the old home of Beatrix Potter, which is a 17th-century old cottage known as the ‘Hill Top’. The house of Wordsworth is also nearby in the vicinity of Grasmere. You can even visit his grave that is in St. Oswald’s Churchyard.
