When setting off for your next adventure in the Lake District there are several things to keep in mind besides having the best time of your life. There are places to visit, sites to see, and nature to enjoy. In an effort to help you get the most out of your holiday, we have identified some tips in which you will want to take note of while on your trip.

  1. Pack accordingly. There are so many amazing things to do in the Lake District, that you want to make sure that you are prepared with the proper attire. With the wide variety of outdoor activities to partake in such as but not limited to hiking, fishing, cycling, and boating, you will surely want to pack comfortable clothing that is lightweight and breathable. Also be sure to pack proper shoes. It would not serve you well to pack your favorite Converse All-star shoes to go hiking. You may want something a bit more suitable by brands such as Columbia or the North Face.
  2. Wear sunscreen. While the weather will vary in temperature and the clouds may come and go, it is still important to be prepared with sunscreen. The gorgeous landscape can take your breath away and also provide great access to your skin. If you are not a fan of wearing sunscreen, opt for a long sleeved shirt, long pants, and a wide-brimmed hat. This will keep you from getting scorched by the warm sun which could cut your vacation short if you were to get sun poisoning.
  3. Drink water. While on vacation, regardless of where you are traveling to, it is important to stay hydrated so that you can enjoy your time to the fullest. If you are dehydrated, your body may not be able to keep up and may require frequent rest stops or worse, a hospital visit. Eat and drink to nourish your body so that you can be as active and adventurous as you want to be.
  4. Try something new. One of the best things about going on holiday is that you are most likely going to a place where you can experience and try new things. Don’t be afraid to be adventurous and attempt something that you have never done before. Perhaps you are new to boating or you have never heard the stories of Beatrix Potter. Whether you stop by the Beatrix Potter Museum for a spot of tea and biscuits, or you go on a boating excursion, trying something new will provide a long-lasting memory from your travels.
  5. Take photographs. The Lake District provides some of the most outstanding backdrops for scenic photographs. Whether you photograph the gorgeous Tarn Hows or Beatrix Potter’s farmhouse, be sure to take many so that you can remember the lovely trip you had. It is also a good idea to get a few photographs of you and those you traveled with.

The Lake District is gorgeous and has something for everyone. When you are traveling, be sure to remember our friendly tips and have a great time!

    Super advice. It is always a good idea to pack sunscreen and remember to use it. I am getting in a habit of bringing a water bottle with me when going out also.
