Cumbria, in the north-west of England and bordering with Scotland, is a land of lakes, mountains and legends. The land is full of ancient myths and stories, but the county of Cumbria was only created in 1974. Made up of the former counties of Cumberland and Westmorland, Cumbria is better known as the home of The Lake District. Travellers to Great Britain should plan a summer holiday break to include this wild landscape.
The area's stunning mountainous landscape includes Scafell Pike, the highest point in England, and is a favourite with climbers, ramblers and hill-walkers. If you're interested in doing any of these outdoor activities, but aren't familiar with the area, it's a good idea to book onto a guided tour. These tours are run by expert guides who can offer walks and climbs for people with varying degrees of experience. Various climbing walls in Cumbria provide the opportunity to practice before attempting the real thing.
The many lakes in Cumbria provide the perfect opportunity for sailing and other water-based activities like canoeing, water skiing and windsurfing.
These activities can be a great way to spend the half-term break in an area of stunning lakes, the like of which you won't find anywhere else in England.
You can also take a steamer across the larger lakes like Ullswater, or a rowing boat on Derwent Water. Another way to travel and see the landscape in Cumbria is by steam train.
Cumbria's steam railway provides visitors with a close-up look at how people in this area used to travel, as well as being a great way to view this mountainous county.
