Updated: 26 August 2020

We have sadly taken the decsion to cancel all of our 2020 guided walk and navigation course program.

Our walks are run by our wonderful volunteers, keeping them and you safe is our main priority. We are hoping to bring back our walks for the 2021 season.


There are lots of events and activities happening in the National Park celebrating local culture, wildlife, scenery and much more. From fabulous family days out to high fell hikes. Events take place across the National Park so no matter where you are, you'll find something nearby.
