BEST BOOKS ABOUT THE LAKE DISTRICT (OR SET IN THE LAKE DISTRICT)

WILLIAM WORDSWORTH

No selection of books about the Lake District would be complete without the appearance of the poet William Wordsworth. He was born in Cockermouth and spent his life in the Lake District drawing inspiration from the area. If you are a fan of Wordsworth’s poetry a visit to Dove Cottage his home in Grasmere is a must for your Lake District itinerary.
