The Lake District boasts some of the most dramatic, beautiful scenery in the UK. It is a mountainous region – in fact, all the land in England higher than 3,000ft lies within the Lake District National Park!
That includes Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain. This is one of the best places in the country to see how glaciation can leave its mark on the landscape – many of the landscape features were formed during the last ice age, over 20,000 years ago.
If you do choose an Activities Week school residential to the Lake District, you’ll stay on the shores of Windermere, the largest natural lake in England. Windermere has been a popular tourist attraction since the late 19th century, when people started arriving to spend their summers by this beautiful lake.
