explore and enjoy the arts & culture on offer in cumbria
In England’s Lake District, familiar things are made extraordinary by the landscape. There’s outstanding culture in inspiring settings, and a creative energy that puts the Lakes in a class of its own: artworks in mountains and forests, galleries and artists’ studios, intimate venues and outdoor stages, and a packed programme of festivals, all within a few short miles.
