Lake District Resources

 

The Lake District is an area of exceptional mountain scenery, where wild fells soar high above the fourteen lakes in the region. It is home to England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike, and England’s largest and deepest lakes, Windermere and Wastwater.

Cicerone's Lakeland Fellranger series provides a comprehensive and indispensable guide to over 230 fells of the Lake District. Comprised of The Central Fells, The Near Eastern Fells, The Southern Fells, The Mid-Western Fells, The Western Fells , The North Western Fells, The Far Eastern Fells and The Northern Fells, it’s a bagging list to rival the Munros.

If you prefer a long distance trail, how about the Cumbria Coastal Way or The Tour of the Lake District? Or for the opposite, our Short Walks in Lakeland series with guidebooks for the South, North and West provide plenty of inspiration.

For climbers, there is a similar amount of variety, with scrambling routes in the North and South as well as many winter climbs across the region. Finally, don’t forget about the mountain biking routes the Lake District has to offer.
