Lakes District or Amsterdam

We only have enough time to either go to Amsterdam or the Lakes District. Which would you recommend?

Talk about chalk and cheese, the two are such complete opposites its pretty impossible to second guess why you are considering one or t'other.

Toss a coin :-)

Agree with Bb. You need to decide if you want lakes and hills or a city before deciding.

Chalk and cheese is a under statement.

I have been to both many time's and yes I do like both but in different ways.

The lakes is full of well, lakes. mountains, open air. A drink in a beer garden.

Amsterdam is full of well, Shops, bars, people, places to visit sight to see.

You cannot pick any where further apart then those two.

I know, its a hard decision. We do like hiking, exploring the outdoors, but since we're so close to Amsterdam, we'd also like to experience it.

We only have 8 days in the UK.

We're planning on staying in Bournemouth, Bath, and Ironbridge Gorge... then our decision, do we keep going North to the Lakes District or fly to Amsterdam. We're going to end our trip with London.\

Any help would be greatly appreciated....

To be honest what help can we give you apart from.

The lakes is one of the best areas of England to walk in, and Amsterdam is great for fun things to do.

One word of warning, if you do go to Amsterdam don't try to bring any drugs back into England.

I'd recommend Amsterdam.

Each is worthy of a visit, though.

Bizarre question. Why Amsterdam in particular? How will you get there, and back to London?

What can we say other than pick which appeals most to you.
