|The English Lake District, which has Ambleside at its centre,
cannot be seen in just one day. |
There are so many facets to it and so many exciting and interesting
things to see and do in this most
beautiful part of England that it is well worth a longer stay.
Go Ape, Zip Wires, Indoor climbing and caveing, all types of water sport, running, climbing, cycling, mountain biking
.....the list goes on...
|bring some good strong shoes or walking gear, Flip flops and stilettoes are not reccomended for high peaks!!
Ambleside is a great centre for walking and cycling, with access to easy, strenuous, difficult and darn right dangerous routes which are great ways to see the landscape, get excercise and have fun.
Tourist Information Centres carry walks and cycle route leaflets to get you on your way. So do we.
And WALKING IS FREE!!
You can tour the Lake District by bus (get a day or 2,3,4 day bus ticket for economy). Grasmere and Hawkshead are but a short step away -well a good few steps actually -say 4 - 5 miles.
