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.
