Rainy Days in the Lake District
The Lake District's picturesque patchwork of lakes, valleys, woodlands and mountains make it one of the premier places in Britain to enjoy the great outdoors. Unfortunately, the beautiful landscape is nurtured by the highest rainfall in the country. Choose the wrong week and experiencing the great outdoors can be more of an endurance test than a pleasure.
What to do on holiday when the cloud level is at 100 feet, the lakes are grey and sullen and the views are only dimly hinted at through a veil of persistent drizzle - carry on regardless and get thoroughly wet or patronise the numerous attractions and spend a fortune.
Rainy Days in the Lakes offers a solution to this problem with over twenty suggestions of free and interesting things to do in the Lake District in less than perfect weather. Some, though by no means all, are still out of doors and involve some walking but only for a short time and the interest will overcome the discomfort of the weather.
Each expedition is designed to take half a day and suggestions are made for combining them together to make an enjoyable and cheap wet day out with a break for lunch in the dry.
For orders below £100 it's currently a very reasonable £3.50 charge.
