Reasons to go

1. Cities

2. Hiking in the Lake District

  • Striding Edge - ridge walk to Helvellyn
  • Crinkle Crags
  • Hardknott Roman Fort
  • Scafell Pike
  • Buttermere hike from Buttermere village, up to Red Pike, along the ridge to High Stile, and back along the north-east side of Buttermere lake. Beware of loose small rocks that make some steep parts of the route perilous, regardless if you do this hike in clockwise or anticlockwise direction.


  • Trainline app is the best place to see all UK trains, it’s not free but it’s usually worth it.
