Christmas in the Lake District
Father Christmas is keeping busy on board the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Santa Express throughout December. While there’s also a chance to catch the big man at the various Holker Hall celebrations or the Keswick Victorian Fayre.
Meanwhile, Windermere welcomes one of the biggest Christmas events in the Lake District in December with its annual Christmas Celebration. Featuring an outdoor ice-rink, live music and an array of local market traders.
Local Farmers Markets
It’s not just Windermere getting in on the festive action either. After all farmers markets are a regular occurrence in the Lake District, with December 2019 no exception.
In fact, traditional German markets join the likes of Orton’s Farmer Market on the 14th December and Christmas in Cartel on Friday 20th December.
Shopping in the Lake District
Then, of course, there’s those last-minute Christmas presents to purchase. The Blackwell Arts & Crafts House is worth checking out for handmade items, where you can pick up stocking fillers you’re unlikely to find anywhere else.
Alternatively, for local produce try Booths near Windermere train station or plan a day out shopping to nearby Kendal.
Winter Walks and Lake Cruises
It may sound a risky move thinking of going walking in the Lake District in December, but don’t let the weather put you off. After all, the softer ground and cool air can in fact be ideal hiking conditions.
Although, if you’d prefer, there’s always the more relaxed way to travel with Windermere Lake Cruises.
New Year in Windermere
By organising a spa break in the Lake District for New Year, things can be as hectic or quiet as you desire. Whether that be toasting a loved one as the clock strikes midnight from the comfort of your own spa suite, or partying with friends in the local pub.
