Holidaymakers flocking to the Peak District
Bookmark and Share
British holidaymakers are picking up camping gear and flocking to the Lake District to sample the delights of the traditional ales the area has to offer.

Marcus Simmons, managing director of accommodation and tourism directory iknow-uk, explained searches on the site in the past month have revealed many Brits holidaying at home this year are drawn to the ale-offerings of the region, particularly in the village of Castleton.

He said: "It could be that people have thirst for knowledge of local ales or that people are searching for an idyllic pub with spectacular views."

However, Mr Simmons stated whatever the reason for British holidaymakers donning their walking boots and heading to this part of the UK, it is reassuring to know they are keen to spend time discovering their own country.

Walkers visiting the Lake District this weekend may have enjoyed a historic hike through the Kentmere Valley. The original lake at the site was drained in the 19th century so silicon could be extracted from its bed.
