Lake District £


The Lake District Pound (LD£) is our region’s local currency. You can spend it interchangeably with Sterling, in businesses where you see the LD£ sign.

EVERY LD£ YOU SPEND supports our communities…and shows local businesses you care. 

Lake District Pounds 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 you can always change back any LD£ you don’t manage to spend. But 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.
