Sightseeing & Activities
When thinking of the Lake District most people think of Windermere, England’s longest lake set majestically amidst the most breath-taking scenery in the Southern Lakes. The village of Windermere sits at the edge of the stunning Lake District National Park and is a favourite with tourists and visitors. Lake Windermere is a paradise for any water sport enthusiast and is always buzzing with activity whatever the weather. The Windermere Steam Boat Museum is a perfect family day out, as is the visitor centre at Brockhole.
However, within a 5 minute walk you can be having fun on Segways, hiring electric bikes or having a go at archery. www.lakelandsegway.co.uk/
There are water activities (zorbing), canoeing, rowing, skiing available on most of the lakes. Horse riding is a great way to unwind and see some of the beaches and woodland in and around the area.
Throughout the year there is an endless programme of activity in the Southern Lakes, festivals, fairs, drama, dancing, markets, steam gatherings and shows fill the streets of the towns and villages of Cumbria with life.
Artists and poets have always found inspiration in such surroundings, the never ending tranquil beauty of the countryside, the dramatic backdrop of the mountains, the gentle comings and goings of village life and the hustle and bustle of the towns makes the Southern Lakes the perfect place to visit
