Lake District included in CNN’s 27 sights that will remind you how incredible Earth is

Filed under Uncategorized

The Lake District has been included in a round-up of 27 inspirational places that will remind you how incredible Earth is, released by CNN.  We’re not quite sure why the list is limited to just 27, but the Lakes find themselves in good company in the list, alongside the likes of the great migration in East Africa, Australia’s Sydney Harbour, the Taj Mahal in India, and the Northern Lights in Scandinavia.  Of the Lake District they write:

“There’s something mystical about the quiet bodies of still water ringed by majestic fells that feature in the new movie ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’. The Lake District is the glory of northwestern England, and was a favorite of poets Wordsworth and Coleridge as well as Beatrix Potter, the creator of Peter Rabbit, who celebrates his 110th anniversary this year.”
