The Lake District is a Unesco World Heritage site. Its beauty is the result of thousands of years of industry and agricultural working on the spectacular natural landscape of mountains, valleys, lakes and woodland. It is a cultural landscape of international significance. The beauty of the Lake District inspired artists and writers of the Picturesque and Romantic movements and generated ideas about landscape that have had global influence.
