Culture

Great painters, architects, world class writers and poets have always gravitated to and been inspired by the breathtaking landscape of the Lake District. The result is a region with a wealth of arts and culture of serious pedigree to inspire visitors of all ages.

Historic houses, castles and gardens abound. From the window seats of Blackwell’s serene white drawing room you can look out across Windermere to the high fells beyond, or take a 19th century Steam Gondola across Coniston Water to Brantwood, home of John Ruskin.

For an outdoor experience, venture along the forests trails of Grizedale and see the artwork of Andy Goldsworthy or take the ferry across Windermere and wander through the woods to Beatrix Potter’s farmhouse, Hill Top.

From museums to music festivals, the Lake District can offer an cultural break to recharge your body, mind and soul this Winter. As an added bonus, you can download a range of exclusive offers to ensure you only stretch your mind, not your purse strings.
