Recently named Britain's latest UNESCO World Heritage Site, the picturesque Lakes joined the likes of Machu Picchu, the Grand Canyon and the Taj Mahal, and is the 31st place in the UK to be awarded UNESCO World Heritage status.

2018 will also see the release of Peter Rabbit in cinemas, making it the number one film location and literary hotspot of the year.

Lake District - General Views

Beatrix Potter's classic tale of a mischievous blue-jacketed rabbit trying to sneak into a farmer's vegetable garden will see James Corden voice the lead role of Peter and Rose Byrne starring as Bea. The voices of Margot Robbie and Daisy Ridley will also feature. Some of the location scenes were shot in the towns of Ambleside and Windermere.

The Lake District was Beatrix Potter's home and fans of the author and the new film can soak up the natural beauty and plentiful wildlife which inspired many of her literary creations.

A highlight for your 2018 trip is Hill Top, Potter's home which dates back to the 17th century and is full of her favourite things. The gorgeous garden is straight out of one of her 'little books' and features a rhubarb patch where Jemima Puddle-Duck laid her egg and the garden where Tom Kitten and his sisters played.
