Hollywood star Warwick Davis is set to show why the Lake District is his ‘favourite place in the world’.

Famed for starring in Star Wars and Harry Potter, the actor and his family spent a weekend camping in Keswick for an episode of ITV’s Weekend Escapes with Warwick Davis.

As a keen ‘staycationer’, Warwick shows his reluctant wife and two children what the British holiday can provide that can’t be found in other parts of the world.

During his trip to the Lake District he tried his hand at Ghyll Scrambling down mountain streams and rocky crevices – even though he cannot swim.

The pupils investigated the hospital’s annual energy consumption to see how it could be done differently to cut carbon emissions and suggested using local suppliers as one option.
