I used to visit the Lake District alot when I was younger, I don't remember a great deal if I'm honest (apart from getting some colouring pencils from the Keswick pencil museum.....isn't it funny what sticks in your mind!). I know my parents love visiting the Lakes and perhaps someday soon we'll head that way for a UK break away. With it being the Summer holidays, perhaps you are heading to the Lake District, if so I thought I would do a quick round up about some places to visit that we would be going to if we were staying for a week.
We would also be checking out the local area while visiting and taking in the beautiful views and scenery that is on offer in the Lake District. Seeing as we are in the modern world and technology is strongly relied many tourist spots are using email verification enabling them to keep in contact with customer's and up to date with the goings on in and around the area.
So here are a few ideas of things to do while in the Lake District. As I mentioned above the Derwent Pencil Museum in Keswick would be a really fun day out. Not only will you learn about the history of graphite but you can see the worlds longest pencil and the kids can have a go with all sorts of different pencils and crayons, lets face it all love to draw so it would be a good choice to visit.
This next idea is one I think my 2 would love. It sounds pretty cool, the predator experience is an experience day with a difference, reptiles, falcons and wolves are all to be admired and experienced all whilst contributing to the conservation of these magnificent creatures. What a fab thing to do! We've been to similar falconry days out and they really are a sight to behold.
We would not be able to go somewhere without visiting a zoo or wildlife park, one of the first things I do when visiting somewhere is check out if there are any animal places near to where we are staying, Alfie absolutely loves animals and a trip to the Lake District Wildlife Park would be a must. I know for a fact that it would be a lovely day out for not only the kids but for us parents too!
There is also a plethora of castle's to visit in this area, too many to choose from! I don't think a visit to the Lakes would be complete without checking out the historic side of things. You can't beat a good castle that's for sure.
I am a strong believer in exploring our beautiful country and if I hadn't already booked 2 holidays this year I would be checking out the Lake District as a place to visit. Join in the pride for our country with the hashtag #PostcodePride
