Windermere is surrounded by extraordinary landscape and with Englands largest lake on its doorstep, the area is packed with things to do.

These range from attractions and activities across the region, family days out, bird watching, nature walks and much more. These events are spread across the region, so no matter where you are, you can find a local activity to participate in!
