Britain, places to visit, attractions, heritageThis is the place to search for places to visit and things of interest in Britain, by name, location, type, keyword – or just have a browse.  It is a growing directory – over 780 entries have been listed as of July 2020.  Most entries have links for further information.



The Lake District is the largest and most visited national park in England. It includes England's highest peak (Skafell), as well as its longest (Windermere), and deepest (Wastwater), lakes. It is a mountainous region of great beauty - but it can also be a harsh environment. The mountains were eroded by glaciation and the retreating ice formed the lakes in a radial pattern.  The area is also known as 'the English Lakes' and is popular with walkers, cyclists, campers, families - as well as outdoor enthusiasts of all types, including serious climbers.
