The Lake District in Cumbria is a world heritage site and one of the country’s major tourist attractions. It has been popular since Victorian times and while the poet Wordsworth may have sown an attractive image of a host of golden daffodils when we went to research this feature in the Autumn it was certainly not tranquil. We found an overwhelming host of cars and humanity so until the spread of the covid-19 virus is contained it would certainly not be a safe place to visit.
The article will appear along with other new reports
when it is considered appropriate to encourage travel.
