Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 185828533X, Paperback)

The Lake District National Park set in the northwest county of Cumbria is England's most scenic and popular holiday destination. Within an area a mere thirty miles across, sixteen major lakes are squeezed between the steeply pitched faces of England's highest mountains, an almost alpine landscape that's augmented by waterfalls and picturesque stone-built villages dotted throughout the valleys. A hikers paradise.

The Rough Guide is the most complete general handbook available on the Lake District, offering an unparalleled overview of the region; the major tourist spots and the lesser known pockets, info and advice (maps and safety) on the major hiking trails, the best places to eat and stay and coverage of the area's literary heritage from Wordsworth and Coleridge to Beatrix Potter and Melvyn Bragg.
