Without a doubt the Lake District is one of the nicest parts of the UK, with plenty of nice scenery for you to enjoy while you are there. However, as nice as the Lake District is that isn’t all it has – in fact there are so many things that you can see and do in this part of the world. This is great news because it means that whatever you enjoy you should find that there is something to suit you.
Visiting The Lake District
Whether you’re visiting for the day or you are spending some proper time here, you can be sure that the Lake District will have plenty for you to do. Even if you just want to spend your afternoons exploring and enjoy proper English tea there is plenty for you to do here! However, there is so much more too!
For example you can visit eateries, restaurants and pubs in the area. There are some renowned places to eat here which means that there is something for everyone. There are also a number of independent, small, local shops here that you can enjoy too. This makes it easy for you to get your hands on locally made items such as jewellery and household ornaments.
Other places to visit while you are here include The Lakes Discovery Museum, Brockhole, Beatrix Potter’s World, Aquarium of the Lakes, Go Ape, the Ruskin Museum and much more. Of course as you might have guessed there are also loads of lakes that you can visit. These have a range of water sports and activities that you can take part in and enjoy including fishing and cruises.
The Surrounding Areas
While you are in the North West, you could check out everything else that this part of the world has to offer. Kendal for example has some amazing shops, theatres and restaurants. It’s also a really pretty town and therefore well worth a visit.
If you fancy visiting places a little further afield then the rest of Cumbria is also worth paying a visit to. You could even head down the M6 and visit seaside towns such as Morecambe, Fleetwood and Blackpool. These all have different things to offer so have a little look into what they offer to decide which seaside town is best for you.
Whatever you decide to do when you visit the Lake District, you’ll be glad to hear that there is something for everyone. On top of that there are hundreds of different accommodation choices out there – so whatever you are looking for you should be able to find something that suits.
One really good option is to look at Lake District cottages. What you will find with Lake District cottages is that they come in all shapes and sizes. So whether you are travelling alone or with a group of people you’ll be able to find the right size holiday home for you. As it is a cottage you can really make yourself at home, come and go as you please and do exactly what you want while you holiday in the Lake District and what could be better than that?
