Spots you must visit on your first trip to the Lake District

6 spots for your first trip to the Lake District

The iconic spots for first-time visitors to the Lake District with a car rental.

The Lake District is one of the most iconic things to do if you’re visiting the UK and is the perfect day trip from Manchester if you’re itching to get in the car and explore. It’s also only 70 miles up the motorway, directly north, which means you can be there is less than an hour and a half. 

As a visitor, it’s also really only accessible through car hire - so pack up your walking boots (and your waterproofs, always) and get ready for some good old British ambling.
