Rick Steves’ Europe Travel Guide | Hiking through the Cumbrian Lake District — England’s green and pristine mountain playground — we’ll admire idyllic lakes, discover misty waterfalls, tour a slate mine, and conquer stony summits. And we’ll meet the locals — and their beloved dogs and sheep — everywhere. Then we play a little cricket, hike Hadrian’s Wall, and get dazzled by Durham’s Norman cathedral.
