Welcome in the New Year, in the Lake District!

Jo Spencer - Thursday, December 17, 2015

If you fancy getting out of the city to welcome in the New Year, there’s no better place to celebrate than the Lake District! In addition to great walks, pubs, shopping and spectacular views, there’s so much to see and do – whether you’re here solo, with a partner, or as a family, take advantage of the holidays to visit one of these great attractions! Even better, they’re all weather proof!

 

 

Aquarium of the Lakes – Lakeside, Windermere

 

More than 30 spectacular, naturally-themed habitats bring the natural history of the Lake District vividly to life. Enjoy close encounters with hundreds of amazing creatures including trout, eels, pike, perch, giant crabs, rays and many more. A fun all weather attraction, you can also combine your day out with steam train trip, or cruise! http://www.lakesaquarium.co.uk/index.cfm

 

The Armitt Museum - Ambleside

 

The Armitt Museum is a unique place combining library and museum, scholarship and fun, art and entertainment. One of the UK’s rarest, small museums, the Armitt encapsulates all that is best about Lakeland and its people, and preserves that essence for future generations to enjoy. This is achieved by the generosity of countless benefactors and volunteers who together have created the building, collection and exhibitions. The Armitt has a superb collection of books and manuscripts, drawings and paintings, memorabilia and archaeological objects relating to an extraordinary gallery of famous Lake District characters. http://armitt.com/armitt_website/
