Welcome to Lake District Drives

Lake District Drives describes a series of 16 wonderful driving routes and itineraries which between them visit all the main lakes, towns, villages and attractions within the Lake District and also many just outside the National Park but still within Cumbria. The area has some of the best scenery and visitor attractions in the country and the routes are designed to take these in and provide great days out for all the family.

**November 2021 – Due to Coronavirus restrictions, attraction and facility details may not be as described in this website in the near future. Check attraction websites for details.

The Drives

There are 15 local drives which are generally 30-50 miles in length and include the best attractions along the way. These drives can normally be done in a couple of hours without any significant stops, or extended with visits to any of the attractions on route. Additionally, the Ultimate Lake District Drive has been designed to take in the best scenery and attractions that the National Park has to offer in a single 126 mile circular route, ideal for those wanting to sample the whole area.

Each drive contains descriptions of attractions visited on route with links to attraction websites, descriptions of the route between attractions, facilities on route, an interactive map of each route plus attraction sat nav coordinates and files for download. The drives are also available as individual PDF files which can be saved and viewed even without internet connection, a common situation in the Lake District.
