The Lake District, Cumbria is simply brimming with fantastic attractions and experiences – and to celebrate, we would love to hear and see you shout about the fun you’re having during #CumbriaAttractionsWeek, from 29 August to 6 September!

Predator Experience

While famous for its world class landscape, two world heritage sites and more than 100 miles of stunning coastline, this part of the world isn’t just about the views. There’s so much more to do, all thanks to the teams at our brilliant businesses, who can’t wait to see you!

Whether you’re looking for an exciting outdoor activity or a fascinating indoor attraction, you’ll find you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to our huge range of adventure, relaxation, arts, culture, heritage and unique experiences to give you a truly immersive getaway.

Lakeland Motor Museum

Despite the summer holidays drawing to a close, there are always weekends for fun-filled trips with family and friends, with many attractions open seven days a week for those with even more time to fill.

Whether you’re a local resident looking for something fun right on your doorstep or a visitor from further afield looking to make lifetime memories, we’d love you to share your experiences as they unfold by sharing your snaps during #CumbriaAttractionsWeek on social media.

Take a walk with wolves at Predator Experience, get up close and personal at the Lake District Wildlife Park, witness the wonder of birds of prey flying at Muncaster Castle or gaze at creatures of the deep at the Lake District Coast Aquarium.

Whinlatter Forest

Breathe-in the fresh air at Whinlatter & Grizedale Forests, enjoy stunning gardens like Holker Hall and Askham Hall, and explore the arts at Tullie House or delve into Cumbria’s heritage at Coniston’s Ruskin Museum, the Lakeland Motor Museum, learn more about the coast at The Beacon Museum and discover Cumbria’s rich Roman history at The Senhouse Museum.

Manjushri Temple

Mediate at Conishead Priory’s Manjushri temple, create your own confectionary at The Chocolate Factory, blow glass at Cumbria Crystal, or try your hand at dry-stone walling.

Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway

Smell the steam by taking a trip on the Lakeside & Haverthwaite or Ravenglass & Eskdale railway, cruise on a Windermere or Ullswater ‘Steamer’, and learn more about boats and the people who built them at the Windermere Jetty Museum of Boats, Steam and Stories.

Indulge in a spot of Golf at Carus Green, get wet at the Low Wood Watersports Centre, go on a fell pony camping adventure, or swing through the branches at Treetop Trek… and that’s just to name a few!
