Local services in The Lake District

Shop local in Lancaster’s quirky boutiques and independent galleries, or choose from renowned high street brands in Penny Street, St Nic’s and Marketgate stores. Browse food, gifts, crafts and books at the twice-weekly Charter Market, and then relax in one of Lancaster’s wealth of cafés, coffee shops and restaurants.

Many of the Lake District's best loved places are easily explored by bus, boat, bike or boot. Enjoy the views without worrying about traffic or parking and help the environment. Visitors to the Lake District have a good number of options for getting around, despite the very rural nature of much of the area. If you opt for travelling by car, then expect some pretty narrow roads and traffic jams in places, depending on the time of year. The Lake District boasts good public transport links and the local authorities recently launched a project to encourage more visitors to try a car-free holiday. 

Windermere and the surrounding area is arguably the most famous and popular area in the whole of the Lake District. There are a range of activities, attractions, places of interest and things to do around the lake, and on it!
