The Lake District Pound has arrived at Brockhole
Love the Lakes and all the amazing history? You can now travel around the Lake District with our very own currency!
The Lake District Pound is a way for you to enjoy the spectacular area whilst supporting local businesses. This scheme is a fantastic way to give back to the Lake District so that it can stay special for years to come. And we are delighted to welcome the new LD£ to Brockhole and share the beautiful designs with you all.
How does it work?
All you need to do is hand in your sterling to a LD£ provider and you will receive the same amount back in LD£, just look out for the LD£ sign outside businesses. Don’t worry, there are no extra charges or commissions involved. If you are unable to spend your LD£ then you can simply hand it back in to any LD£ provider. If you wish to keep them as a memento, the money will go to the two chosen charities, Cumbria Community Foundation and the Lake District Foundation which is currently funding to rebuild the Lake District National Park’s Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path.
Did you know?
The Lake District Pound has been uniquely designed with some of the most famous characters from the Lake District including Beatrix Potter, William Wordsworth and Wainwright. They have been featured on the 2018 LD£ as they make up some of the Lake District’s history and greatest memories, all of which we are very proud of!
