It may be out of season but there is still lots happening over the Easter bank holiday in the Lake District. It’s no surprise that chocolate is high on the agenda for things to do in Easter 2018. Easter egg hunts featuring heavily among our things to do in Windermere.

Including The Beatrix Potter Gallery, Claife Viewing Station and Hill Top. Events start in the week prior to Easter weekend, check local listings for further details.
Easter Egg Hunt Cruise on Coniston Water

Little Langdale – Fells and Tarns
Another hiking trail will take you over “Little Langdale” as you venture across the Fells (hills) and Tarns (mountain lakes). It’s a well-known walk through the Lake District, but 1st April you can join others on a guided walk. Alternatively, when you’re looking for things to do in Windermere throughout the year, walks in the country should be top of your list.
Hug a Bunny in Bowness
If you’re visiting friends or family in Windermere with small children, then call into the World of Beatrix Potter attraction. The famous childhood author has strong ties with Cumbria. Having spent many a holiday in the Lake District, Beatrix Potter then set up home in the area. With the release of the new Peter Rabbit movie, Peter will be making a very special appearance on the 2nd April.
Where is Peter Rabbit?
Another fantastic event at the World of Beatrix Potter takes place the weekend after Easter on Wednesday 4th April. Visitors are welcomed with open arms, ready to join their biggest ever Easter Egg hunt. If you’re detoxing at a spa retreat, you still deserve to indulge in the chocolate festivities. After all, it’s in the name of charity!
