With Easter beckoning and a raft of activities on offer, Brockhole, the Lake District Visitor Centre on the shores of Windermere, is celebrating coveted VisitEngland endorsement.
Commercial manager, Victoria Gordon-Ingham, said the centre was already a firm favourite with its 230,000 annual visitors, but the top-level achievement in the tourist giant’s Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme was an enormous accolade.
She added: “News of our success, which allows the accreditation to be displayed at Brockhole, couldn’t have come at a better time. We are expecting around 8,000 to turn up over the weekend, while numbers for the whole Easter school holidays could exceed 23,000.
“Our visitors tell us they love what we’re doing here, but to have VisitEngland recognising and endorsing the quality of our product and service is testimony to the whole team’s commitment and enthusiasm.
“We have a fantastic line-up of events for Easter, including juggling and balloon modelling with Astral Circus on Easter Monday!”
Other action-packed family fun sees a whole range of fantastic opportunities to enjoy great experiences in the heart of the sensational Lake District National Park, said Victoria.
Alongside the Easter themed extravaganzas on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, including egg hunts, a Beatrix Potter trail and exploration around the renowned Brockhole grounds, there are archery sessions and even bushcraft survival skills.
