Let’s get eggcited – 10 cracking ideas to keep you entertained this Easter holiday

The Lake District is quite simply a beautiful place to visit any time of the year, but Easter has to be one of our favourites. With spring flowers starting to show their brightly coloured faces, the sun glistening on Windermere (if we are lucky!) and the temperatures nice enough to enjoy lots of outdoor activities, it’s no wonder a visit to the National Park tops the list.

Whether you are enjoying an Easter weekend away, a holiday in the Lake District or like us, are lucky enough to live here, we look forward to you joining us at Brockhole on Windermere this spring for some very eggciting events, activities and much more…

Take a look at our top 10 activities to put a spring in your step:

  • Easter Eggsplorers is back this year by popular demand, join us anytime between 11am-3pm on 25 and 27 March for a whole selection of Easter themed fun and games. Take part in the ultimate eggsplorer trail around the gardens, have your face painted and then get crafty with some Easter creations!

  • Pop into the bird hide on 27 March from 11am-4pm and meet our volunteers who will help you spot our little feathered friends as they enjoy the start of spring.
