Days out at The Lake District

There are a wide range of activities and things to do in the Lake District, and with more than 3,100 kilometres of rights of way, you can walk, cycle and ride around our countryside to your heart’s content. In the winter you can even learn winter skills with our very own Fell Top Assessors on Helvellyn. As well as enjoying your time on land, you can also get on the water of the lakes and coastline.

When looking for things to do in the Lake District, simply take a look at the sections below and find the right activity for you – including all year round attractions, our events calendar, local festivities and walks.

Here we’ve listed some of the most popular Lake District attractions, so you can browse and find something you fancy. From making use of the Lake Windermere boat hire options at Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa to scaling the Via Ferrata at Honister Slate Mine, there’s sure to be something for everyone.

Boasting Scafell Pike – England’s highest mountain, and Wastwater – England’s deepest lake, ‘The Lakes’ offers some of the UK’s most stunning scenery, inspiring artists such as Turner and Ruskin to some of the country’s best loved writers, such as William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter.

Enjoying the lake is one of the best and most common ways to pass the time. Hop onto one of the Windermere Lake Cruises, or go kayaking or canoeing on Windermere for a more adventurous thrill.

With such a wealth of beauty, culture and hospitality it isn’t hard to see why the Lake District remains the perfect setting to explore and enjoy.
