The western Lake District is the wildest and most remote of the 5 regions. Home to both England’s highest mountain and it’s deepest lake it offers almost limitless scope for landscape photography. Here are 6 locations to get you started.
The central Lake District covers the area around the popular tourist destinations of Ambleside and Grasmere. With so many wonderful locations to choose from it can be difficult to know where to start but you could do a lot worse than these six.
The northern Lake District is centred on the area around the busy market town of Keswick. Derwent Water is one of my favourite locations to shoot and features no fewer than 3 times in my guide to the northern Lake District.
The eastern Lake District covers the area surrounding Ullswater and the Haweswater Reservoir. Its proximity to the M6 motorway makes it the most accessible of the 5 regions of the National Park.
The southern region of the Lake District National Park includes two of its most famous lakes. Windermere is England’s largest lake while Coniston Water will be forever synonymous with speed record holder Donald Campbell.
