The Lake District is as renowned for its unpredictable weather as it is for the stunning landscapes that make up the region. However, the likelihood of rain isn’t something that should affect your enjoyment as there’s plenty to do when it gets wet and windy.

Here are just a few examples of activities to suit whole families, kids and the grown-ups.

For families there are active pursuits such as the Honister Slate Mine’s Infinity Bridge as well as more subdued activities such as ‘The Rum Story’ which provides an engaging historical look at the rum trade.

If you’re looking to keep little ones active, what better way than to visit the ‘World of Beatrix Potter’ – based in the beloved author’s homeland – your children have a chance to get up close and personal with all their favourite characters such as Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-Duck.

No demanding little ones with you? There’s plenty for grown-ups to sink their teeth into. From a spirit tasting session at the Lakes Distillery to a relaxing cruise on the Ullswater Steamers or even an all-elements trek to the stunning Aira Force – you’re guaranteed to find something to keep you occupied.
