10 March 2020

 

The Lake District is one of the most popular areas for holidaymakers in the UK. With such spectacular surroundings as well as countless activities and exciting things to do, this is the perfect place to be this Easter, especially if you are hoping to have a fun time away with the family. 

So, if you make it up to the Lake District this Easter, here are some of the best things to do that will ensure fun for all the family.

Easter Egg Hunts

This is a perfect activity for the kids who will love exploring the countryside of the Lake District while they’re on the hunt for chocolates! Over the Easter weekend, there are a number of planned Easter egg hunts, with a number organised by the National Trust and Cadbury, so keep an eye on Cadbury’s sponsored Easter egg hunts to find out when and where they will be taking place.

 

Muncaster Castle – Teddies Go Free

Make sure to bring the kids’ teddies with you on your Easter holiday to the Lake District and they can get free entry into Muncaster Castle. From the 10th to the 13th of April, every child who is accompanied by their teddy and a full entry-paying adult will get free admission to the castle. The weekend will feature children’s crafts, face painting, an Easter egg trail and the Muncaster giant Easter egg hunt.

 

The World of Beatrix Potter

The World of Beatrix Potter is always an excellent place to visit with the family, but this Easter it will provide even more fun and excitement for the kids with events taking place across the weekend. On Good Friday, make sure to bring along a homemade Easter bonnet as children wearing them will get free admission when accompanied by a paying adult. There will also be tea parties, egg hunts, and even a photo opportunity with Peter Rabbit himself.

 

Malory Towers at the Theatre by the Lake

This fun new musical is based on the novels of Enid Blyton and is perfect for kids and adults alike. Malory Towers tells the story of Darrell Rivers as she starts school and gets to know the girls around her. It is a tale of friendship packed with nostalgia and magic along with fantastic songs and animations.

Performances will be running from Friday 27th March – Saturday 18th April so make sure to get your tickets now before they’re all booked up!

 

Windermere Lake Cruises

Easter is the perfect time to get out onto the water and get a unique perspective of the Lakes. You can opt for a cruise or take the family out on a motorboat or rowing boat so you can see the lake for yourself. If you’re planning to make a day of it, you may be better off opting for a ticket that combines your cruise with admission to a local attraction such as the Lakes Aquarium or the Motor Museum.
