Cumbria is home to the Lake District National Park, considered one of the most beautiful areas of the United Kingdom. The area has provided inspiration for generations of British and foreign artists, writers and musicians.

The highest point of the county (and of the whole of England) is Scafell Pike at 978 m (3209 ft). Parts of Hadrian's Wall can be found in the northernmost reaches of the county, in and around Carlisle.

The modern country of Cumbria was created in 1974, by combining the area of the abolished administrative counties of Cumberland and Westmorland, plus the Furness part of Lancashire, and a protrusion of Yorkshire (the former Sedbergh Rural District). The name "Cumbria" has been used for the region for centuries.

Following the creation of Cumbria as a non-metropolitan county, some people, particularly those born or brought up in the area, prefer to refer to the Furness area by its traditional county name of "Lancashire". Others, including local government, promotional material for the area, the Lake District National Park Authority, and most visitors describe the area as being in "Cumbria".

The culture of the area was predominantly Celtic until quite late (see Rheged), and the name derives from their name for the area, in the Cumbric language. It is etymologically connected to the Welsh term Cymru, meaning "Wales". Cumbria remains one of the most Celtic areas of England.
