Should I have not left this until last? People often like to leave the best till last, but the reason why I wonder if I made the right decision, was the fact that I had already been quite exhausted by this time of the day. When I saw the path to Orrest Head, I knew it would be something worth seeing. I dragged myself up the hill, hoping it wouldn't be too high up. Once I got to the top, I was glad I persisted.

Other than Grasmere itself, I found the whole of the Lake District amazingly beautiful. According to what I have seen shared on Facebook, I have only seen the tip of the iceberg. There are a lot more amazing sights that I had not gotten the chance to see for myself. I wish someday I could.

This is it. The moment for which I had waited so long to see. Wordsworth's very own house. When I saw the house, I immediately understood 'how' the poems came about. Unfortunately, the good stuff can never be photographed. You will have to find a chance to see what the inside is like, but I can show you the view he got to see every day.

This is the home of the bard. This is where the child became the father of the man. This is where daffodils blossomed. This is where he wondered lonely as a cloud. This is where his soul forever lies in peace and tranquility.

If you go to Stratford-upon-Avon, you will see nothing but Shakespeare. When you come to Grasmere, in the Lake District, you will see nothing but Wordsworth. While it must be kept in mind that Wordsworth was not the only Lake poet. Coleridge and Southey were also Lake poets, but it was indeed Wordsworth, that became poet Laureate. This is his home. The scenes that follow, are the scenes which had inspired his poetry. The beauty of the Lake, immortalised by his words, remain one of the most beautiful places on our planet Earth.

Other than being the home of one of my most beloved poet of all time, William Wordsworth, The Lake District is also home to the popular charismatic author of Peter Rabbit - Beatrix Potter. In the numerous gift and souvenir shops ubiquitous around the region, you will see not only Wordsworth related items, but even more Peter Rabbit related items.
湖區不僅是我摯愛詩人William Wordsworth的故鄉。他同時也是『彼得兔』作者Beatrix Potter的故鄉。在湖區各種禮品店哩，你可以找到很多Wordsworth相關的周邊小物，但你同時也不能錯過各式各樣的彼得兔周邊商品喔！
