Christmas in the Lakes

Christmas might look a little different this year, but there are still plenty of ways to celebrate the festive season in the Lake District. Plan a day out with the family or find ideas for things to do from the comfort of your own home.

Visiting information for this winter 

In England and Northern Ireland, our gardens, parks and countryside remain open for local people to exercise. Shops, houses and other indoor areas are closed, and cafés are takeaway only. The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors from the nearby community remains our priority and we urge you to book your visits in advance and stay local. All places in Wales are currently closed. Please check the property webpage before you travel.
