Lake District
England's largest national park,  its lakes, tarns and peaks are a thing of poetry, art and music.

Interestingly, the station, built in 1846, was opposed by William Wordsworth.

South Downs
A priceless rural refuge for anyone living in the busy south-east of England, this is one of the best national parks near London and, in fact, the nearest.
