International Giving


International visitors to the Lake District soared in summer 2018 in the wake of UNESCO heritage site inscription, and are set to keep soaring – the number of Chinese visitors to the UK alone set to treble by 2020. With international visitors increasingly eager not just to benefit from what the Lake District has to offer but to give back to the national park, many of them are helping us to care for the spectacular landscapes, wildlife and cultural heritage of this beautiful region. Below, we share some of their stories with you, along with the stories of the tour operators and local businesses that are helping international visitors to contribute to our visitor economy and help keep the Lake District special for all of us, now and for always.
