Cumbria

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Cumbria
Most people speed through Cumbria in a mad rush to get to the region’s most popular tourist attractions, the Lake District National Park and Hadrian’s Wall. Despite this unfortunate oversight, for centuries this county of outstanding natural beauty, bustling market towns, and picturesque villages has inspired musicians and writers, including William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Much of Cumbria is mountainous, and it notably contains Scafell Pike, England’s highest point. The region’s history was long characterized by invasions, mass migrations, and repeated bloody land disputes between the English and Scottish. Today, Cumbria stands poised to be invaded by tourists, but for the moment visitors here can enjoy quiet tours of the unspoiled land, dramatic mountain walks, sparkling lakes, and scenic hillside trails. With our world travel planner, United Kingdom vacations can be built around trips to Cumbria and other destinations in United Kingdom.
