Lake District Pound

Lake District Pounds are the regions own local currency. They are worth the same as Sterling pounds, but only unique, local, independent businesses accept the LD£, so you know you're supporting our community while you spend.

It costs nothing to swap your cash for LD£ and if you keep a few LD£ notes as souvenirs (with exciting new designs to collect every year) your money goes straight towards local projects that care for our communities and preserve our precious landscapes.

Get a LD£ Passport and have fun on the LD£ Passport Trail. Collect unique stamps whenever you spend Lake District Pounds in participating unique local businesses. Collect any set of 5 stamps to earn a prize. There are 7 sets to collect in total and the more you collect – the more you win!
