London's Lake District is renowned for its stunning landscapes, which inspired writers like William Wordsworth. It is also home to the fanciful woodland characters of Beatrix Potter. Thanks to the speedy rail lines that connect London to Oxenholme, it is possible to visit the Lake District on a day tour from London, but it's best to allot more time to explore all the lakes and villages of this area.
