The changing seasons of the Lake District

The Lake District is certainly one of the most beautiful parts of the UK, and in each season it has a very distinct character. Even if you have been to the national park before, you are going to be very impressed if you come for a second time in a different season, as it feels as if you are visiting an entirely different location.

Of course, one of the most popular things to do in the Lake District is go hiking, and there are many incredible walks that can be had through the mountains and forests here. Depending on what time of year you come, you are going to be rewarded with a very different experience. There are many different woods in the area which could be explored, and all of them look entirely different at different times of year.

If you are coming in the spring, then it would be a good idea to visit Ullswater as you will be able to see an incredible waterfall, which maintains a great deal of the water that collected throughout the winter, and so in the more warm weather of the spring, you can still see a very impressive sight.

Many of the attractions in the area do close during the winter months, such as the castles and stately homes. This means that if you are coming in the winter that is is probably a good idea to go hiking, rather than attempting to look round any of the local attractions. Most of these will open for business again in the spring, and this will mean that if you, too different times of year you are going to have something to entertain you both times. Spring has to be one of the most incredible times to visit the Lake District, and if you had to choose between the seasons, choose this one.
