Lauren + Adam’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 05 May 2007

Location: The Lakes District, UK

MapAnother part of England that we really wanted to visit the last time we were here but didn't get too was The Lakes District, which is meant to be one of the most picturesque parts. So Adam and I headed about 4 hours out on London with a bus load of others to visit this area famous for it's lakes and famous writers. William Wordworth was born and lived in one of the areas small villages and Beatrix Potter loved this area so much that she bought a house and wrote many of her famous stories here.
We started our trip by visiting the biggest lake Windermere. We took a cruise on the lake and had a look around the beautiful little town before heading to were we were going to stay for the night.
