Bookmark and Share
Visitors to the Lake District have been offdred a 3D view of the Lake District to represent what they will see if they swap car tyres for walking boots this weekend.

GoLakes Travel is encouraging people to go car-less to the national park and its website contains a series of images that people can see in their full glory with a pair of 3D specs on.

Its Drive Less, See More campaign is encouraging people to reduce congestion and pollutopn, while encouraging the use of public transport to get to and aroud the lakes, as well as more exploration on foot.

The images include a walker's eye view of Loughrigg Tarn, which lies at the foot of Loughrigg fell and close to the Langdales.

Visitors to the national park can access it by rail in two places.

The Lakes Line from Kendal stops at Staveley and Windermere, while the West Cumbria Line passes through the part of the area that stretches out to the west coast, with Ravenglass the most notable stop.

Visitors can head inland on the Ravenglass to Eskdale mini railway to the foothills of England's two highest mountains.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801454601-ADNFCR
