World Heritage Signature Experiences
with Lakes Culture

In 2017, the Lake District National Park became the UK’s biggest World Heritage site. The special inscription was awarded by UNESCO for its Cultural Landscape – it is a landscape with meaning, significance and a lasting legacy.

Our landscape has been shaped by thousands of years of industry and agriculture. The scenery has inspired artists and writers that have had a global influence, and it was the birth place of the conservation movement, including the National Trust and UK National Parks.

With such a vast World Heritage site, we have developed these Signature Experiences with our partners, Lakes Culture, to help you understand and enjoy what makes the Lake District so special and to let you in on some things to do that you may not find in the guide books.

The Signature Experiences are categorised into geographical areas, but make sure you browse through them all to pick and choose and book the experiences that appeal to you. We have also recommended a variety of places to stay in each area that can be booked on this site with your chosen experiences. It’s time to make your visit to the Lake District truly unique.
