Spring family fun in the Lake District


Three boys looking through magnifying glasses in a garden

Wordsworth House

Trails, replica toys, games and dressing up. Go wild like William and his sister Dorothy with an explorer bag - hunt for animals in the house, discover bugs and bees in the garden, and get tips on how to turn an ordinary backyard into a nature haven.

The artroom at Allan Bank in Grasmere in the Lake District

Allan Bank

Possibly the most relaxed National Trust place we know. Call in with every family member, including the dog, for an afternoon of picnicking inside, making your own cuppa, board games and crafts. If the weather’s kind, laze in a deckchair with views overlooking Grasmere.
