Lake District visitors looking for inspirational ideas to enjoy the National Park will be spoilt for choice in 2017, as a packed programme of more than 350 new events and activities is launched by the Lake District National Park this week.

February half term holidays kick off this exciting programme with activities such as sharpening your winter skills with a Fell Top Assessor on Helvellyn or meet Milly the Mombasa train millipede at Minibeast Magic at Brockhole on Windermere.

There’s something for everyone, including the return of Lakes Alive Festival, in Kendal in September - a finalist in the recent Cumbria Life Culture Awards. Many events are free or low cost and it’s the perfect way to discover more about the Lake District as it bids to become a World Heritage site in July.

Lake District National Park Volunteer Coordinator, Belinda Turnbull, said:

“We have more than 250 guided walks and navigation days on offer this season. All delivered by our amazing team of volunteers. Walks start from easy, leisurely strolls through to high fell hikes. The full programme can be found on our website. Many are bookable online to guarantee a space or you can just turn up on most activities.”
