Editorial Reviews

Nestled in northwest England is the Lake District, a land of visually stunning fells (mountains) and lakes. Its natural beauty inspired the romantic Lake Poets, Wordsworth, Southey and Coleridge and writer Beatrix Potter. Known to millions who love the Lakes is late author, guide writer, artist and fell walker, Alfred Wainwright (1907-1991), whose 7-volume Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells have motivated generations of fell walkers to explore this lovely landscape.

Armed with Wainwright's famous illustrated guides, host and novice climber Julia Bradbury faithfully follows ten of his most popular routes. With spectacular aerial views, fascinating history and evocative Wainwright quotes, this is an entertaining, must-see exploration of the classic walks and climbs of England's scenic Lake District.

I am a big fan of Julia Bradbury and watch her show whenever I am in the UK. A few years ago my husband and I walked the Coast to Coast Path and I have been hoping to buy Julia Bradbury's series on that walk. When I was given this DVD as a gift I had no idea what to expect and was thrilled to watch every episode. Julia Bradbury takes you on a series of fell walks in the Lake District, following in the footsteps of Alfred Wainwright. The scenery is stunning, the aerial photography made me want to book a ticket on the next flight, and her narration captures the love that Wainwright felt for the Lake District. The DVD showcases a series of hikes; it does not showcase the lovely towns and villages of the area. If you are a fan of Wainwright and love to hike then you would no doubt enjoy this DVD; if you want a travelogue of the Lake District then it would no doubt disappoint.

My husband and I are planning the England Coast-to-Coast walk next year and this series is giving us a taste of what we will see. While each episode is formulaic, the host is lovely and the films are relaxing to watch.

This was disappointing. The English Lake District is an incredibly lovely area, which is why it has been a major tourist attraction for over 250 years. My wife and I know the area well; she is native to the place. We were looking forward to seeing familiar sights and sites once again. Unfortunately and incredibly, the photography was not good. In any case, the photographers spent most of their film on the (not very) attractive presenter and the little that was left on the landscape. The presenter also issued a continuous stream of narration; usually inane and sometimes silly. This rather boring narration overrode the lovely sounds of the area, water, wind and birds, even she was talking about these sounds. As I said, disappointing.
