The Lake District National Park is an extremely popular recreational destination within the UK and receives millions of visitors each year. There are nearly 100 bodies of water in the Lake District, with many having names ending in 'mere', 'lake', 'water' or 'reservoir' and many smaller 'tarns'. Can you name the 16 largest by surface area? They are all located within the park boundary (shown in green)?
The full name, with correct prefix or suffix, is required to be entered.
If you're a Lake District enthusiast and really want to test your knowledge of the area there is a much harder version of this quiz available at Ultimate English Lake District (with map).
