Lake District Birthday Party Ideas

Overview

A birthday is the perfect time to get out in the world and try new things, and there’s nowhere better or more beautiful to do that than the Lake District. Like something out of a postcard, it’s stunning surroundings are the perfect place to go for action-packed outdoor activities.

There’s a ton of fun things to do there, such as ghyll scrambling, paintballing or quad-biking. All these activities are perfect for birthday party groups big or small. And with chilled out crafty activities to get stuck into, anyone can enjoy a Lake District birthday party, no matter how many candles they’re burning!

The Lake District isn’t a place for clubbers but it’s a pub lover’s paradise. Where better place to go for a birthday meal than one of the many quality pubs dotted around the Lake District? There’s nothing like a bit of pub grub to warm you up after a day of Kayaking and Canoeing in gorgeous lakes.

See our full range of fantastic Lake District birthday party activities and enquire online today. It’s easy and we’ll get back to you in no time. Happy Birthday!

Travel

The Lake District is a region and national park in the North West of England comprising a number of key destination hotspots such as Windermere, Coniston and Keswick to the north. It is therefore very dispersed and although there are good rail and road links into the main towns, travel once you arrive is predominantly by car. Of course as a national park walking or taking a boat or steamer is the order of the day to see the wonderful scenery.

Tips

Here are a few tips that might help you during your party or group event in The Lake District.

  • The busiest season is between June and August, when prices rocket, car-parks are packed and traffic jams are frequent.
  • If you are going walking as part of you group event or party weekend. Essential items include proper boots, good waterproofs (ideally Gore-Tex or equivalent), plenty of food and water and a detailed walking map; a compass is very useful, but only if you actually know how to use it. Take a mobile phone in case of emergencies, but don’t rely on being able to get a signal.
  • Traffic can be a serious headache at peak times, especially in summer and on bank holidays.

Nightlife

The Lake District is a beautiful part of Britain that’s thankfully been left largely untouched. Sadly, though, this leads many to believe that there’s not much to do there when the sun goes down and it’s far too cold for canoeing. That couldn’t be further from the truth. While you won’t find many noisy nightclubs or trendy bars, the Lake District is home to plenty of quality pubs, both cosy and calm or lively and exciting. Nothing beats a pint and some warm pub grub after a cold day out on the Lakes. Pubs might not be big on shots and cocktails but for beers, wines and cask ales they can’t be beaten. Even if you don’t like pubs, there’s plenty of chic bistros and restaurants to spend you a lovely evening in.

So don’t judge a book by its cover. When It comes to nightlife, the Lake District is more than meets the eye.
