Walking in the Lake District and cumbria
Cumbria & the Lake District is the UK's favourite destination for walking enthusiasts. This is due to the huge variety of walking routes, each with their own unique features.
It could be that you're looking for a challenging one day hill walk, multi day trial or a gentle stroll - the Cumbria has it all. Many classic walks by Lakes or through valleys have been made famous by a host of artlicles and guide books.
Most famous walks are accessible from Cumbrian towns, or are served by public transport all year round.
If you're looking for something more low-level, there are walking routes suitable for the whole family that will accomodate buggies, wheelchairs and walking aids.
