Region Information

North West England consists of the five counties of Cheshire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside. The North West had a population of 7,052,000 in 2011. It is the third most populated region in the United Kingdom after the South East and Greater London.

There are so many magical places to visit in North West England. Take in the serenity of Cumbria’s Lake District and scale the heights of England’s only mountain range. Experience the untamed ruggedness of Lancashire’s Trough of Bowland; perfect hiking, cycling and motoring territory. See where many of England’s greatest pop groups formed with a city break in Liverpool or Manchester, and treat yourself to a shopping spree whilst there. Being the home of the industrial revolution, housing the Roman City of Chester and boasting a rich sporting pedigree, this region is steeped in history and intrigue – the only question is where to visit first.

The Northern West of England is famous for its varied and dramatic landscapes, which are home to many of Britain’s magnificent and beautiful National Parks. The Lake District affords the most dramatic scenery with craggy mountains leading down to beautifully mirrored reflections on the still peaceful lakes. Wide open stretches of hills and dales are riven with fast flowing rivers spanned by old stone bridges. Towns and villages are filled with dark stone houses and buildings that offer a constant reminder of the rich industrial heritage of this area. The broad sandy beaches along the west coast provide a haven from the industrious and vibrant cities beyond.

The North West of England is most famous for its beautiful Lake District, which has inspired so many poets and authors over the centuries. Spectacular scenery and a feast of local produce to try provides a wonderful way to enjoy a summer cottage holiday, romantic break or family gathering. This is an area to seek out active enjoyment; to walk, climb on the mountains, to sail and fish on the lakes and tarns, cycle or challenge yourself to a high rope walk. For the less energetic who, nevertheless want to enjoy the spectacular scenery, there are some fantastic pubs and restaurants where you can enjoy local, seasonal produce, such as Herdwick meat, Morecambe Bay shrimps, locally made cheese, Cumberland sausage, sticky toffee pudding or a local beer. The National Trust cares for a quarter of the Lake District, including the central fell area, the major valley heads and six of the main lakes and much of their shoreline.
