Do you enjoy tours, castles or maybe some time on the water? There is something for all occasions.

Mountain Goat Tours

The highly rated sightseeing tour agency in Windermere is a popular option for those wanting to see more of the Lake District.

Also offering tours of Yorkshire and North Wales, the Lake District tour is one that can explore the best mountains, parts of the countryside and towns in the county.

Kya Dagless said: "Me and my husband had a wonderful two days doing the 10-lake adventure tour with Peter on day one and doing day high adventure tour on day two with Tony. Both gentlemen were wonderful to talk too, extremely clued up in the area and always there to give advice about other great walks and things to do in the area. Bonus that they both were fabulous photographer for us - which we greatly appreciated. They made the whole tour and our whole trip that much friendlier and easier for us both. Very good for the price of the tours. Definitely would go again if and when we return to the area."

Windermere Lake Cruises

For a day on the water there are few better ways to enjoy the experience than on one of the Lake Cruises' ships.

With amazing views that can only be found on the water, this is perfect for families especially in the summer months. 

Chris F said: "Such a great way to see the lake and the area. Well-kept vessels, professional and informative crew. Great amenities. Outdoor and indoor seating. Refreshment bar. Regular daily service. Multiple route options. Fun for the whole family. Especially on a beautiful day like today. Recommended. A little pricey, but worth it."

The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction

A day out centred on one of the country's most celebrated children's authors is perfect for couples with young children.

With its interactive exhibits and an enjoyable recounting of Potter's writing, this is the perfect option for an adventure out.

Nick Wisdom said: "Really good museum. Love the displays and story. The only thing I would say even though it is wheelchair accessible, in places it is very tight and dark. Furthermore, the attraction exit is especially tight and the slope outside the entrance is very steep just be careful."

Holker Hall & Gardens

The iconic hall has played host to a number of annual events, including the Chilli Festival and it will soon host the upcoming Wild Goat Festival, Holker Hall is the place where it all happens. 

The Cumbrian countryside hall is on 200 acres of gardens and woodlands, with a deer park & tour.

Rennie Schafer said: "Beautiful house to visit where you can wander at your hearts content with no barriers or roped off area. Only the new 1800s section open as family live in old wing. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. The gardens are stunning. Very dog friendly with dogs allowed in gardens, cafe shop, everywhere but the house itself."

Forum 28

Why not take in a show? The Forum is known for its theatre shows, media and arts events in Barrow.

It has a large theatre and stage, several conference and function rooms, and a Costa Coffee outlet.

Joanne Holmes said: "Needs supporting more to keep this available to the locals. The venue has a variety of shows, concerts, local talent, and famous ones too, that venture to perform. Small compact venue that packs a punch and delivers. Recently Cast theatre group, local, performed 'my son Pinocchio' which I performed in alongside my daughter."
