The lake district photography location guide

Whiteblackbackground copy.png

The Lake District is renowned for being one of the most beautiful National Parks in England. Popular amongst the likes of walkers, hikers, photographers, daytime tourists, campers and so on; it’s easy to understand how this amazing landscape has claimed its glory! With its lakes and fells, the area caters for a wide variety of outdoor activities at all levels. From the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike to the gentle walk around Buttermere; there’s a location here for everyone, especially landscape photographers! It’s quite amazing how much beauty is packed into such a small pocket of land on the North-West tip of England! This makes access to different beauty spots across the region all the more accessible with relative ease!  

I’ve been lucky enough to be based here in Cumbria since 2018 and even before that, spent a large amount of my time exploring the beautifully diverse landscape of the Lakes! It truly is a spectacular part of the UK for photography; really offering a wide range of possibilities for photographic opportunities. I have created a location guide aimed at areas of specific interest for landscape photography with advice on photographic technique such as composition and best times of day for shooting. However, I’ve also included advice on how to get to these locations with detailed route directions which may be useful to non-photography folk who are just trying to find some of the best views in the Lake District! So, whether you’re looking for the best place to see a sunrise or just wanting to find a quite secluded part of a lake to sit and breath; you’ll hopefully be able to find that here on this page!  

Be sure to check back every once in a while, as I will be regularly adding more stunning locations to this list! Also, feel free to contact me if you have any areas you would like me to cover or if you have any questions about the areas you see on this page!
