The English poet William Wordsworth
was born in 1770 in Cockermouth, Cumberland, which is part of the scenic region in northwestern England known as the Lake District. By the turn of the 19th century Wordsworth was living in Dove Cottage on the edge of the village of Grasmere in the center of the Lake District. His fellow romantic poets Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey were frequent visitors to his home.
220 years later, Taylor Swift fell in love with the Lake District during a trip with her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. On "The Lakes," she sings about the beautiful world heritage site.
