The Lake District is easily accessible by road, lying conveniently off the M6. Note that roads in the National Park itself can get very busy, particularly going to and from major towns during peak periods (when Ambleside and Keswick can be chaotic).

The Lake District is also well connected to the rest of the UK by rail, with trains from London taking three-and-a-half hours and those from Glasgow and Manchester less than two hours. Trains stop at Oxenholme Lake District for the Southern Lakes, with connections to Windermere and Ambleside, and at Penrith for the Northern Lakes (Derwentwater, Ullswater), with connections to Keswick.
