Best Walking Routes in Lake District National Park

The Lake District National Park is home to some of the most scenic and spectacular walking routes in Britain, with around 20 million people visiting each year to explore its mountains, lakes, valleys and picturesque towns and villages.

There are hundreds of great hiking routes to choose from, covering the highest peaks in the heart of England’s most mountainous National Park. The Lake District contains iconic peaks such as Scafell Pike (England’s highest mountain), Helvellyn, Blencathra and Great Gable, with walks and trails to suit everyone from families and strollers to experienced hillwalkers and backpackers.

The busy towns of Keswick and Ambleside are the main hubs for tourists, but adventure can be found anywhere in the National Park. There are no peaks more than 1000 metres high, so every mountain in the Lakes can be climbed in a single-day walk, and there are endless accommodation options including hostels, pubs, hotels, cottages, and campsites if you want to stay longer.
