Overview
More
The Lake District National Park is a national treasure and World Heritage Site boasting England's largest lake, Windermere, and its highest peak, Scafell Pike. People come from all over the world to enjoy this beautiful landscape and soak up the special culture and we think one of the best ways to do this, is by going on a Lake District National Park guided walk. Whether you’re new to the Lake District or you’ve bagged every Wainwright, our guided walks have something for you. Join one of our local experts and you could enjoy summitting world famous peaks like Scafell Pike or Coniston Old Man. You could find yourself exploring ancient caves, paddling in the sea, staring up at wild waterfalls, exploring historical houses, gazing across vast valleys and of course looking onto our the beautiful lakes, that give this special place its name. We also run Navigation for Beginners (how to use maps and compasses) and guided bike rides. All of our guided walks, courses and rides are led by passionate, local volunteers who love nothing more than to show you around and share their love of the Lakes with you. Visit our website and find a walk, course or ride near you today. We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the Lake District so we keep our prices low and many of our walks are free. Every penny of ticket prices goes back into the volunteer led guided walk programme and keeping this place special for generations to come. If you would like to help us do this you can book a walk but also donate on our website today.

I did 3 'moderate' walks in 4 days: a pretty walk near Staveley; Castlerigg from Keswick; & High Rigg (loved the St John's in the Vale church and the stopover for tea & scones at the farm). All with amazing views. The friendly and skilled...More

Great walk with knowledgeable guides who catered for all right down to a three year old! Thoroughly enjoyed it. Will definitely return and hope to do the Tall Tree Trail. Any prospect of a guided walk there?

I've only been once but I'd imagine any month is a good month. It's a beautiful place and very scenic. Cumbria would probably be a good destination, as things are a little bit more accessible there. Perhaps Centre Parcs... More
