Lake District

Voyages & Images, a photografic guide 

The Lake District is one of the most beautiful regions of the United Kingdom. Lakes, mountains, fields and bucolic villages are visited by the British people during the summer since the times of Queen Victoria.

The Lake District was the fourth place of an itinerary made in the United Kingdom in June 2008. The region extends itself for 56 km. The villages at the banks of the lakes can be reached by regular lines of boats, by buses that cover the region or by car.

Windermere is the largest lake of England. Its left bank washes the little city of Bowness (Bowness-on-Windermere), 2.5 km from the city of Windermere.

The cities of Bowness and Windermere are very pleasant, specially prepared for tourists e full of hotels, restaurants and shops (images below).

Bowness is a starting point for the cruises of Lake Windermere.

The beauty of the region surprises the visitor. During the cruise of Lake Windermere we can appreciate beautiful views of distant mountains, fields and small villages along the lake banks.

Considered according to some fonts as "an idyllic retreat to the north of Lake Windermere", Ambleside is a pleasant small village, with many options for lodging tourists that use it as a base for hiking and mountain-climbing. The architectural style of the village is mostly Victorian.

The opportunity of visiting the Lake District should be considered a privilege for the dedicated photographer, considering the natural beauties of the region and its pleasant villages.
