We live in a beautiful world…

Welcome to Go Lake District, we provide you with free walking guides and maps for your use in the Lakes and Cumbria. Whether you are looking for a pleasant family outing in the Lake District or a hike up on the mountains or fells, we are sure you will find something on this website.

We are particularly pleased to offer a range of walks also suitable for children and show a variety of walks with sections suitable for pushchair or wheelchair use.

We also offer you our independent roundup of the various tourist attractions such as Ravenglass railway, Ullswater Steamers and other boat hire in Cumbria, and things to do when it rains in the Lakes, with our wet days guide. We also include a selection of free attractions. We give you the information and website links you will need before planning which attractions to visit.  We have a summary of the free attractions too (other than the countryside of course).  We can recommend what to do, whatever the weather; so we’ve got ideas if you have children to entertain on a wet day.
