on the way to scotland we visited this place as my daughter is into stonehenge, history and romans, nice place on a sunny day, much older than stonehenge (about 4500 yrs old), nice place to spend a couple of hours, not many parking places though

In the neighbourhood of Keswick. In the Lake District National Park. I have been many times traveling. I have seen a lot, but this beats everything. The views are breathtaking, really fantastic. It's for free. You must go absolutely.

Been many times. Especially spectacular during the winter months if snow has fallen. Can get very busy during the main tourist seasons, but get there at dawn during the summer and you may have this special place all to yourselves x

I would not say it is a must have, but it is nice to look at and the area really has a mystical touch. The walk from Derwent Water is no so easy to find, since the bridges over little streams collapsed due to a...More
