The Lake District continues to grow in popularity and not just with visitors from the UK but further afield. Visitors from Japan and America are in high numbers and have been for some years now but European tourists are now realising the beauty of the Lake District and coming over here to experience it more and more.
So many countries in Europe have arguably more stunning scenery but the appeal of the English Lake District is its compactness. Upon arrival, nowhere is hard to access, fells, lakes, countryside, fields and coastline can all be enjoyed without needing to travel very far.
With the whole world in a food frenzy at the moment, restaurants and other food outlets in the Lake District are raising their game creating and producing menus fit for a global audience and even more importantly, showcasing the high quality local produce found right on their doorstep.
It isn’t then a surprise that the German media have cottoned onto this, their landscape is similar to ours in some regions but on a much bigger scale. The following article, click here, published on Yahoo Lifestyle Germany gives a whistle stop tour of ideas for places to visit, experience and stay at whilst visiting England’s most popular National Park such as Grizedale Forest and the boutique hotel in the Lake District, Brimstone Lake District Hotel at Langdale. Their new spa is leading the way in spa breaks in the Lake District and in fact the whole of England’s North West region.
Here’s to even more of the world discovering this delight in northern England and the UK’s newest and largest UNESCO World Heritage Site.
