Things to do in Grasmere this half-term

Children painting at Allan Bank in Grasmere

On the hunt for things to do this half-term? Look no further, we have all you and your family need to have a great time at Allan Bank.

Try out a new look

Our playroom is full of traditional toys and a dressing up box, sure to keep them entertained for hours.

Go wild

Venture up into the woods to make the most of our wild play area. Den building, balancing logs, stepping stumps, what more could you want?

Play game or two

Spread out on the floor and have a family game, choose from cluedo, monopoly, snakes and ladders, chess or card games.

Discover a new hobby

Head to our crafty room where we have everything you need to try your hand at knitting, including step by step instructions for complete novices!

Paint a picture

Take inspiration from the views from our windows, we have all the materials you need to draw and paint as well as some helpful tips. Last year we re-vamped our art room, which means we now have tables and chairs small enough for little budding artists and a lovely gallery for you to hang your masterpieces on.

Spot a squirrel

Allan Bank is one of the best places in Grasmere to see our native red squirrels. We work hard to make the grounds their ideal home, spending over £900.00 on feed every year. You can use our binoculars in Wordsworth’s Study to spot one of them on the feeders outside.
