To keep the good times rolling, the Central Lakes is equipped with the region’s main transport hub, with visitors from like likes of London and Manchester regularly arriving at the busy train station in Windermere and using the bus, boat or taxi service for their onward journey. Starting here in Windermere and balanced perfectly along the centre of the lake District lies the region’s famous A591 – one of the best drives in the UK. Like a perfect Long Island Iced Tea, it skips you along the Central Lakes to Keswick in the North, in utter bliss.

The landscape in the Central Lake District is as varied as you can imagine – from the drama of Langdale to the Romanticism of Grasmere.  There are lesser-known temptations also, with Elterwater, Troutbeck and Rydal.

From the taste of a long-gone thriving spice trade to age-old sporting tournaments still practised today. There’s superyachts and sporting elite; underwater tunnels for discovering Lake Windermere’s hidden aquatic life; relaxing lake cruises and sandy beach coves; the Central Lakes has one key ingredient only found here – a delightful welcome like no-other.
