The Lake District - Tourism

HideShow resource information

The Lake District is a national park in Cumbria. It gets over 15 million visitors per year. 

But why is the lake district so popular?

People come to enjoy the scenery the lake district offers, such as large lakes (e.g Windermere) and mountains. 

Many activities are available to take part in such as sailing, walking, bird-watching, pony-trekking and more. 

Cultural activities such as Beatrix Potter

 Strategies to cope with the impacts of tourists. 


Public transport is being improved so more people will leave their cars at home. 

Campaigns have been set up to encourage people to use new services, e.g “give the driver a break”. This includes leaflets which inform tourists of available routes and discount offers from local cafes that can be used for people presenting train and bus tickets.
