Bring the Lake District Home this Half Term
With half term upon us and a welcomed break from home schooling, we have put together a few things you can do to bring the Lake District to your doorstep.
Experience a Stargazing Extravaganza
Light up your February with a spectacular array of online events celebrating the wonders of the Cumbrian night sky. If you are a first-time stargazer, wishing to expand your knowledge further or even searching for fun family activities during half term, the Dark Skies Festival can be enjoyed by everyone. Take a look at all the events and dates here.
Bring The Outside In
Watch live footage from around the National Park via a number of webcams that have been placed across the Lake District, so you don’t miss a sunset or sunrise during lockdown. Find out more over on the official Lake District National Park website and to enjoy even more of our stunning surrounding landscapes from home this half term, head over to follow @lakedistrictnpa on Instagram.
Delve Into Helvellyn
To help us feel even more connected with the outdoors, Terry Abraham delights with ‘Life of a Mountain: a year on Helvellyn’. He joins Fell Top Assessor, Zac on one of his daily ascents up the infamous, peak to report on ground condition and help keep local walkers safe during the winter weather. Watch the short film on iPlayer.
