The hidden fairy pool in the UK compared to a tropical paradise

If you imagine turqoiuse waters, then you're usually going to think of a tropical island holiday destination.

But what most people don't realise is that there are some places in the UK where you can plunge into amazing blue pools, without even heading to the coast!

Wasdale in the Lake District is home to one of the most breath-taking hidden gems we've seen. It really is out of this world.

This hidden gem in the Lake District is called Wasdale Emerald Pool, and is described as a 'wild swimming paradise' set amongst the stunning scenery in the Lake District.

After visiting this hidden gem in person, we'd say the colour is much closer to topaz rather than emerald green.

The striking blue waters really do stand out among their verdant backdrop of England's tallest mountain Scafell Pike; making the sight even more dramatic.
