Amazing days out
Whether it's a challenging hike on the fells, a fascinating historic story, a delicious treat in one of our cafés or a pint in our pub, the Lakes has a huge variety of exciting things to do all year round.
Experience the great outdoors
Get out and about and experience all that’s great about freedom in the fresh air this winter. If it's working off the festive indulgence, why not take to the fells or amble one of our beautiful lakeshores. Snow? Why not dig out a sledge!
