History of Welcome to Lakeland

History of Welcome to Lakeland

Welcome to Lakeland started life over 36 years ago. The tourist attractions wanted to inform staying visitors what they had to offer for places to go and things to see and do in the Lake District. We first published a folder containing all the steamers timetables, train and bus timetables, historic houses and gardens, shopping centres etc.

Eventually the demand for Welcome to Lakeland became so great from all the accommodation providers, that we realised we had to make it more simple and changed to a bound glossy magazine format to feature everything the visitor needs to know, with suggestions for what they can do each day of their stay.

To ensure these visitor guides are not removed from the accommodation we have developed the website with a virtual brochure and an App for people on the move. We can keep our information for day and staying visitors up to date with events and special offers throughout the year.
