Mountains

Keswick and the Northern Lakes must be one of the most dramatic landscapes in Britain with its spectacular array of mountains all in such a compact area.

Close at hand are the four highest mountains in England, over 3000 feet high.  The Scafells, with their rugged outlines of volcanic rock dominate the central area while Helvellyn and Skiddaw's smoother slopes reflect the softer geology.  These form an impressive background to the lower hills, or fells, and the beautiful valleys with their lakes below.
