As the second month of the year races to the end already, much to everyone’s surprise, it’s now time to give an important thought to Easter. Although a late Easter in 2019, it is less than 8 weeks until Good Friday and the start of the Easter Bank Holiday weekend celebrations and time off for many. Surely you will have noticed the implementation of chocolate eggs in shops as a gentle reminder!
It is the first proper Bank Holiday weekend and being the barer of two free days off, this weekend is always a busy one for going away. This year it almost coincides with the clocks going forward which will happen just the week before, lighter mornings and evenings equalling longer days.
Easter in the Lake District is one of the best times to visit the region. Everything is new from animals and life, the bright green shoots on the trees to the sight of the brightly coloured signature flower of the Lake District, the daffodil. It also means the region is fully open with every shop, attraction and eatery now fully open, full time.
Longer days opens up what and how much can be done in the day. The fells, despite being open all year round may not be accessible for all but in spring they are ready and raring to be explored. The water, well Lake Windermere will no doubt be a hive of activity around Easter. Combine the water with walking with the Windermere Lake Cruises Springtime Walkers Ticket. Leave the car behind for the day and enjoy 2 cruises and a 4 mile walk during the day, https://www.windermere-lakecruises.co.uk/cruises-fares/springtime-walkers-ticket/.
