Wastwater in the Wasdale Valley( in the English Lake District National Park) was officially awarded the prestigious title of ‘Britain’s Favourite View’ by the ITV show of the same name, hosted by Sir Trevor McDonald. (Source www.golakes.co.uk )
I didn’t vote myself,and living in the Lake District I am spoilt with a plethora of views equally as nice,and I go on holiday to Scotland where the views are superb.I can see why it is much loved,and the skyline does form part of the logo of the National Park Authority.
