Cumbria, which is bordering Scotland, is best known for containing the Lake District National Park, containing England’s highest mountains (four over 3,000 feet), and some of Englands biggest lakes. The Lake District is the weekend destination for the active and adrenaline seeking population of much of the U.K. Based in Cumbria in the north-west of England a road trip to and through this area is great fun. It’s best to find a qualified guide to take you out climbing or scrambling in the area.
