Despite the Lake District offering a landscape which needs to be seen to be believed, there will still be some who are unsure of how to get there and back.

The Lake District by Car

Those visiting the Lake District by car need to reach the M6 motorway which runs east to the region.

Those travelling by car can exit the M6 by either using Junction 37 or Junction 40 for the quickest route to the Lake District.

Those travelling from the North can expect the journey to take around three hours, whereas those coming from London will have a trip of about five to six hours.

The Lake District by Train

Those looking to visit the Lake District coming from Oxenholme, Penrith and Carlisle can use the West Coast mainline, which connects London with Glasgow.

Those travelling to the Lake District from the North can catch a direct train from Manchester.

The Lake District by Bus or Coach

Although the trip may take longer, using a bus or coach to get to the Lake District and back can be a cost-effective way of embracing this fantastic environment.

Those travelling to the Lake District from the North can consider bus companies such as Stagecoach which can offer several connecting services.

Those keen to use a coach for their visit to the Lake District can use services such as National Express, which offers coach excursions all over the United Kingdom.

The Lake District by Air

Although not the most convenient way of visiting the Lake District, flying can still be a viable option for some.

The nearest airport to the Lake District is Manchester, so there will be some additional travel required.

However, with domestic connections from London, Edinburgh and Bristol, the use of an aeroplane could help reduce the cost and travel time.
