Family fun attractions

The Lake District, Cumbria has a wealth of attractions and fun days out for the family. Whether the sun is shining or not, there are loads of things to do. For action and adventure, there are a number of options, including Ghyll scrambling - as featured on the BBC's Countryfile TV programme, which involves scrambling rocks and descending a mountain stream; or the magnificent Via Ferrata at Honister Slate mine, which includes a wire bridge suspended 2,000 feet above the Valley floor; or a treetop trek, with swinging logs, shaking steps and a 250m Triple Zip wire.

If you want fun activity, try your hand at archery where you can get in touch with your inner Robin Hood, pull a few strings and shoot some arrows!

On the gentler side, we have lots of activities and fun days out which are suitable for the whole family, including scenic lake boat trips, narrow-guage steam railway trips in beautiful Eskdale, and the wonderful Lakes & Legend tour, where King Arthur or Merlin are your guide for the day, introducing you to many beatuiful scenes and ancient mythical secrets.

Whatever family activity you are looking for, we have something to offer. Let us help you plan you Lake District holiday activities and book easily and securely online with Golakes, the official tourist board for the Lake District, Cumbria.
