Walker's checklist

Our beautiful English Lake District offers some of the best walking in the world.  Whether you’re seeking a leisurely low level stroll or a classic mountain hike, our National Park has an amazing choice of routes.

While our mountains (known locally as fells) are relatively small, conditions especially on the summits can be challenging - and at any time of year.

Heading out for a walk? What you wear and what you take is important to make sure you have a pleasant and safe day out. Our recommended kit list aims to keep you prepared at all times, even in summer so stay safe and have fun!
