Taking its name from the lake nearby, Grasmere is a popular destination in the Lake District. The poet William Wordsworth lived in Grasmere and thought it one of the loveliest places on the planet. Many tourists agree, and Grasmere is a must-see spot for visitors of all kinds, with plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants. The poet's tombstone in St Oswald's churchyard cemetery is a place of pilgrimage for poetry lovers. Many travellers enjoy the charming lake where you can hire a rowing boat. Grasmere also hosts a lively calendar of events, including the summer Rushbearing Festival.
