Spring in Allerdale
Spring is the perfect time for a visit to Allerdale
Get some fresh air in the Lake District National Park, explore the fabulous Solway Coast or come along to one of our great cultural events such as Cockermouth Daffodil Day or the Words by the Water Literary Festival in Keswick. Allerdale is the Capital of Doing – and Spring is a great time to do it!
Easter egg hunts
Spring is the perfect time to get active and take advantage of the warmer weather. You can head straight for Britain’s Favourite Walk – Helvellyn (get a sneak peak of the summit in 360 degree video here) or explore another of Wainwright’s favourite peaks in the Lake District National Park.
Frontier of the Roman Empire
Wordsworth House and Gardens in Cockermouth opens its doors in March and is a great day out. Make sure you take some time to explore Cockermouth’s historic town centre and take advantage of the great range of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. The first Saturday of every April in Cockermouth is Daffodil Day. Head along to All Saints Church for music, poetry and guided heritage walks of the town centre.
If you’re looking for something a bit flatter then a walk or cycle ride along our fabulous Solway Coast is a great option. Route maps and further information can be found by clicking here. Take a trip to Silloth or visit the nature reserves to the North of Allerdale that form part of the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
