Western Lakes And Coast in Cumbria

Home to England's highest mountain and deepest lake...

The Western Lake District is an area of great diversity and contrasts, with famous lakes, awesome mountains and dramatic coastline. Home to Britain's deepest lake, Wast Water (86m metres deep) and England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike (977 metres high).

Much of Western Lake District lies within the Lake District National Park and includes many National Nature Reserves, where, at some, guided walks are available.

Each valley has its own special characteristics, from the austerity of Wasdale to the lush green of Eskdale and the peace of Buttermere Valley. Then of course there is the beautiful Crummock Water and Loweswater.

At the coast visitors will find busy harbours, award-winning beaches and dramatic cliffs. Situated on the shores of the Solway Firth is Silloth with wide uncrowded beaches and views across the water to the Scottish hills (Due to tides not suitable for swimming). This coastal area has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Down the coast is Maryport, with its Lake District Coast Aquarium and Maritime Museum. A short distance inland is the old market town of Cockermouth, where a market has been held here since 1221 and also famous as the birth place of William and Dorothy Wordsworth.
