The Lake District National Park is popular with British people. There are plenty of places to stay, a wide selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants.

North East of England

A scenic part of England is the border of Scotland in Northumberland. The Romans built a wall dividing the two countries, called Hadrian's Wall which can still be seen. The landscape is wild and rugged, a place where many battles were fought. Castles and ruins still stand guard. The towns and villages were traditionally built of stone. Old fishing villages lie on the coast. In the centre is the Northumberland National Park.

A little further south are the cities of Newcastle and Durham, both known for their friendliness and the warmth of the local people.
