Regardless of if you’re a keen football fan or just getting wrapped up in the moment, the World Cup is a special occasion. After all, it only comes around every 4 years. So where do you watch the England games in Windermere?
The 2018 Russian World Cup
With the dreaded penalties out of the way against Columbia, England are one step closer to potentially lifting the trophy. This weekend they take on Sweden in the quarter-finals. Although it could always be decided from the penalty spot once again.
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though, despite the likes of Germany and Portugal out, Sweden still aren’t an easy team. You can, however, join the Swedes in one of their favourite past times and a make the most of a Swedish Barrel Sauna. There are other facilities in your Windermere Spa Hotel too, such as your private indoor hot tub. It may be just what’s needed to relax after the game, regardless of the result.
If you’re not supporting England in the World Cup, or their opposition, there are still plenty of other games to enjoy. All the matches are televised in the local bars, but if you don’t fancy going out there’s still the comfort of your hotel suite. The rooms at Aphrodite’s Lodge all come with fantastic entertainment systems, perfect for watching the World Cup unfold.
