An internationally-known singer has dedicated a song on her new album to the Lake District.
American singer-songwriter, Taylor Swift, has sold out stadiums and performed to millions of people over the years. But despite travelling to all corners of the world, it's clear by the lyrics in her new song that she holds a place in her heart for Cumbria.
Her new album, Folklore, celebrates her love of the World Heritage Site with reference to Windermere and famous poets in a bonus track called 'The Lakes'. Swift visited the area back in 2012 with her then-boyfriend Harry Styles.
“Take me to the lakes, where all the poets went to die,” she sings. “Those Windermere peaks look like a perfect place to cry.” She also references one of the Lake District's most well-known poets: “I’ve come too far to watch some name-dropping sleaze / Tell me what are my words worth.”
And she's not the only celebrity to love the Lake District. A-listers such as Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie and Sting have all been spotted enjoying holidays in the picturesque area of the northern England.
