Lake District and its National Park of UK attracts millions of visitors and tourists every year
The Lake District or Lakeland, a mountainous region in North West England, which I happened to visit in 1977 with one night stay on way to my visit to Scotland for school attachments under the study fellowship course on school technology really refreshed and rejuvenated me from the study fatigue and rigour of the course.

It is a popular holiday destination which famous for its lakes, forests and mountains (or fells), and its associations with poets such as William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin.

Another attraction is the National Park that was established in 1951 and covers an area of 2,362 square kilometers which later got designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Most of the land in England higher than 914 m above sea level lies within the National Park, which also includes the highest mountain Scafell Pike along with the deepest and largest natural lakes in England.

It is the most visited national park in the United Kingdom with about 16 million annual visitors which include foreign tourists, local visitors, students, hikes, adventure lovers and holidayers.

The environment in the park is being protected by restrictions on the expansion of industry or commerce. Only tourism industry is allowed to expand since most of the land in the park is in private ownership, with about 55% registered as agricultural land to preserve the natural habitat. 

The scenic beauty, flora and fauna coupled with unpolluted environment and adventure activities in the Lake District bring both tourists and holidayers to this area.
