Our hidden gem this month is the Tour of the Lake District. It’s just a great idea – take a week of holiday in the Lake District and see all the best sights.

Vital stats:

  • A week-long ‘tour’ visiting all the main valleys of the Lake District, with some high-level options when the weather is good.
  • 93 miles within the Lake District National Park, now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
  • Year-round walking and exploring and great places to stay, although winter weather is sometimes more challenging.
