The Lake District is one of the most scenic areas of England with its majestic mountains, breath-taking views and crystal-clear lakes; there is plenty for any fan of the countryside to enjoy. But this area is more than just a pretty face. Join Rachel as she discusses the ancient origins of this part of the world, some of the poets and writers who have been inspired by its beauty, the often over-looked towns and how this came to be such a tourist hot-spot. Rachel, who was born in the Lakes, will also reveal the success behind a locally produced mint flavoured sweet and why this area is known for its pencils!
