Lake District Events

There's never a dull moment in the Lakes; from spectacular street festivals such as Kendal Mintfest, and the nationally-acclaimed Westmorland Show, to the annual Grasmere Sports, with its Westmorland wrestling, hound trailing and fell running, there is always something happening close by.

Often under-cover and always well-attended, Cumbria's long and eclectic calendar of events provides the perfect antidote to a damp day. So much so that when we compiled a compendium of things to do, we reached more than 60!

For an up-to-date list of all the weird and wonderful events taking place in and around the beautiful Lake District, please visit or call our reception team and ask them to send you our '60 things to do' card.
