Whether you’re up for indoor activities like exploring Lakes Aquarium or taking a walk in the beautiful Lake District, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Things To Do in the Lake District this Easter

The Lake District is full of family-friendly events that promise fun, adventure, and lots of happy memories. From boat rides with Ullswater Steamers to exploring the underwater wonders at the Lakes Aquarium. See what the Lake District can offer in our guide.

Lowther Castle and Gardens

Visit the majestic Lowther Castle for a fun-packed day out. It’s located just a few miles south of Penrith, with easy access by car. The castle, with panoramic views of the Bampton Valley, woodlands and gardens, is an ideal destination for families, offering something special for every age. Kids will love the large wooden playground fort hidden in the woods, and for those who like leisurely strolls, the stunning gardens make it an ideal retreat for all. You will also find a café where you can get freshly made dishes. Plus, furry family members are not left behind – dogs on leads are warmly welcomed.

Ullswater Steamers

Make unforgettable memories with your family this Easter at Ullswater Steamers. Imagine the beautiful views you can see from the boat. The trips could be as short as 20 minutes, or if you would like to explore more, there is also a 2-hour option. It’s great for all ages, and you can also bring your dog for just £1! If you get hungry or just want to sit and enjoy the view, there’s food and drinks you can buy right on the boat. And if you’re walking around the lake, you can use the boat to get back to where you started. Before you go, double-check their website for times and ticket info.

Lakes Aquarium

Another great attraction for this Easter break can be taking your family on a fun day out to the Lakes Aquarium by the lovely Lake Windermere. There’s plenty to see – from the different species of fish that live in the lake to exotic frogs and lizards. The best part is the underwater tunnel, where you can watch fish and ducks swimming right over your head! Plus, you can add a boat ride on the lake to your visit. Hop on the yellow cruise from Bowness or Ambleside and get off at Lakeside, right where the aquarium is. Alternatively, use the 20-minute Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway and enjoy scenic views on the way to the aquarium.

Fun Afternoon Activities Around Carnforth

The Lake District is full of picturesque places that you can enjoy exploring, with many of them within a short drive. But if you’d rather stay closer to home, don’t worry – there’s plenty to do in and around Carnforth over the Easter break.

Lakeland Maze Farm Park

Take your family for a trip to the Lakeland Maze Farm Park and experience the charm of country life! This is an amazing opportunity for the kids to get up close and personal with different animals, such as cattle, sheep, and pigs, but also smaller ones, including ferrets, rabbits, goats, ponies and many more. You can also try out an exciting tractor ride tour, and little explorers can enjoy the challenge of the Mini Maize Maze.

Warton Stock Car Club

If you’re looking for something a little more ‘high octane’, another exciting day out is Warton Stock Car Club, just a few miles from Old Hall Caravan Park. Experience the thrills and spills of no holds barred stock car racing. Whether you and your family like fast cars or just enjoy watching thrilling races with lots of action, this is a great spot to visit for big kids and little kids alike.

Ingleton Waterfalls

If you’re looking for something a little more tranquil, visiting the Ingleton Waterfalls is like stepping into a fairy tale. It’s a four-and-a-half-mile walk with beautiful waterfall views. It takes between two and a half to four hours to walk, but there’s no need to rush! Take your time and enjoy the beautiful views. Remember to take your walking shoes, pack a picnic, and you’re good to go.
