Drive Less See More
We are continuing working with businesses to provide sustainable travel information to visitors through the Go Lakes Travel Programme, this is an exciting opportunity to further develop the work that Fresh Air is Free started. We will be continuing in this vane under a new campaign called Drive Less See More. This Programme is focusing on the South and Central Lake District between 2011 and 2015 it aims to generate a step-change in how visitors travel to and around the area, enabling them to make greater use of sustainable modes of travel. You can learn more about the Go Lakes Travel Programme here.
We want to show your guests all the amazing things there are to do right on their doorstep. This way they can free themselves from parking charges and traffic jams. Absorb some local culture. Take some time and explore the Lake District in a new way... Download our FREE 'Inspiring Itineraries'
