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.
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.
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.
