Hello and welcome to Cumbria Tourism’s official Holiday Guide for 2017. Let us help plan your visit, whether you are thinking of a break away with friends, an adventure for all the family or a cosy cottage stay just for two – look no further than the Lake District, Cumbria.
It’s no surprise that the long-lasting appeal of the Lake District continues to captivate visitors the world over. We are proud to have one of the richest cultural offers in the country that has been inspiring artists, writers, and visitors for generations. Every corner of our County has a lot to celebrate and in 2017 we look forward to finding out if the Lake District’s bid for World Heritage Status is successful and this will further confirm Cumbria’s leading position on the international cultural map.
With changes to the Lake District National Park boundaries it means there is even more of our stunning county to explore and we have now been extended by an extra 27 square miles. Travel beyond and discover 2000 years of history at Hadrian’s Wall, the Solway Coast, Morecambe Bay and the North Pennines all offering truly unique visitor experiences. So it’s time to sit back, relax and read on to be amazed and inspired and we look forward to seeing you soon.
