The Lake District is a remarkable natural and historical place and is proudly one of Britain’s finest tourist attractions attracting millions of people from across the globe to its mountains, lakes and villages every year. People undoubtedly travel from all over the world because of it’s wondrous natural beauty, but the beating heart of the Lake District thrives alongside the hills and fells with live entertainment as well as art galleries and historic museums of all kinds throughout the year. That’s why we have put together a place for you to come and see just exactly what’s on in the Lakes. We will provide you with the very best options for the coming weeks and months in the Lakes.

We have you covered in all different areas of the Lakes, from Kendal, through all the big, tourist destinations such as Windermere, Bowness and Ambleside right through to all the smaller, yet equally beautiful places such as Ulverston, Milnthorpe, Grange-over-Sands, Arnside, Silverdale and many more. Each of these places has their own brand of great things to do in the Lakes, thriving in the Summer and providing a great retreat even through the colder and darker Autumn and Winter days.

So you can enjoy a great bit of culture in the Lakes before heading on out for a stroll amongst the fells and forests to find your own inspiration for creation.
