10 Experience Days in the Lake District

The UNESCO World Heritage Site is a beautiful landscape filled with wonderful scenery and fantastic ideas for experience days in the Lake District.  There are many outdoor activities for all ages, but it doesn’t just end there. Here are 10 experience days in the Lake District.

Walking Tours

It’s almost impossible to mention things to do in the Lake District without going for a walking tour. The perfect way to take in the rural countryside, with organised treks readily available in popular tourist resorts such as Windermere and Coniston.


Really get back to nature with a camping holiday. The landscape lends itself to experiencing the outdoors. If you want to organise your own tour of the Lake District, then you can either go off the beaten track or pitch up next to one of the lakes. There are also lots of official camp sites in the Lake District or you can hire a caravan for an old fashioned British holiday.

Lake District Steam Train

Book a ticket in advance and board the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway. There is something special about travelling by train & rail, so why not treat a loved one to an experience day. It could be a romantic food tour or arrange to drive the train yourself.

Helicopter Tour

When it comes to things to do in the Lake District most people opt for a hiking or walking tour. Then there’s the hop on and hop on boat service. If you’re looking to try something different, why not take to the sky with a helicopter tour.

Lake District Sheepdog Experience

Fancy trying your hand at sheep herding? It’s great fun and also a good idea for a team building activity. The Lake District Sheepdog Experience is also located near to Lake Windermere, leaving you a variety of choices on how to carry on your day.

Afternoon tea in Keswick

While you’re on a heritage tour of Armathwaite Hall Country House, stop off for a culinary experience. Sandwiches and cake will be served with scones and jam, alongside refreshing tea. If you want a taste of rural England then this is as authentic as it gets.

South Lakes Safari Zoo

You can have an unique experience day at the zoo. Feed the mammals, try your hand at being a zoo keeper and much more. If you’re with a school or college, you can have an educational tour at the same time.

Escape Rooms

Since the relaunch of the Crystal Maze, Escape Rooms such as Cliffhanger Rooms in the Lake District recreate the popular game.

Dining Experience

With food and drink tours you can always find something a little different. Cooking workshops are available to book in groups. For a more personal experience Sail and Dine in Windermere provides you with a personal chef as well as a sailing trip.

Experience Days Lake District

With over 15 million visitors annually, it’s no wonder there are so many things to do in the Lake District. Book your Windermere Tranquil Retreat and relax in your own hot tub.
