Things to do near the Lake. What’s on this summer.


There are stacks of exciting activities and events to satisfy a plethora of tastes and preferences this summer in the Lake District.


There is simply too much on offer to summarise in this short article. However we have hand picked the events and places of interest on offer, which we feel are the most unique and unmissable. For more information on all events in the area all year round go to


First up on our list of must see events, is 2020 Vision, a collection of street photography, featuring UK wildlife and natural habitats in three outdoor locations around Morecambe Bay. Captured over a period of 20 months and in 20 locations, the collection challenges the many misconceptions we have of nature and features the UK’s top nature photographers.


Exhibition runs from Tuesday 1st July to Saturday 2nd August.


Another great experience is The Cycle Cafe. The tea garden is a must see vantage point during your Lake District stay, as is open to everyone on Fridays 12am to 6pm, Saturdays 10am to 6pm and the second Sunday of the month 10am to 6pm, until the end of September. The friendly and relaxed environment is perfect for families and those wishing to fully decompress whilst on holiday. The cafe offers a range of speciality teas and cakes and even offers you the chance to observe the galloping racehorses on the near by Greystoke estate.


If you feel overwhelmed by the bevy of events and experiences on offer, why not sit back and let yourself be guided through the entire A-Z of Lake District attractions? You can do this quite feasibly via one of the many bus tours on offer in the local area. Make sure you don’t miss out on a single acre of beautiful views, scenic hotspots or great shops and restaurants along the trails. Check out Millennium travel who offer scenic tours with short easy treks in the company of a guide.


Lastly on your list of things to do, why not check out some music? Cumbria is steeped in folk music tradition and is home to some of Britain’s most highly regarded folk musicians. For three dates this summer, there is an opportunity to see some of the countries best loved musicians come together for a night of unique folk, blues and Americana performances. The show, which is called Roots in Cumbria aims to highlight the wealth of musical talent in the area and promises a memorable night rich in folk entertainment.
