About North West of England

The North West of England is famous for its varied and dramatic landscapes, which is 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 almost perfectly 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.

Counties of the North West: Cheshire, Cumbria, Lancashire, Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Isle of Man

Principal towns: Liverpool, Manchester, Blackpool, Chester, Carlisle, Wilmslow, Douglas
