While we’d love to guarantee sunshine, a rainy day in the Lake District is likely to be on the cards this time of year. Although that shouldn’t ever put you off booking a spa break in the Lake District. After all, with your own spa suite with hot tub in Windermere, you may not even wish to leave your hotel room!
10 things to do on a rainy day in the Lake District
Having said that, you should always be prepared for a rainy day in the Lake District when you book a winter break.
That’s why we’re just as proud of our Windermere spa suites come rain or shine. In fact, with all these ideas on how to spend a rainy day in the Lake District, it’s no wonder people keep coming back for more!
The Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway
Stay in the dry as you admire the wonderful scenery across Cumbria while taking a ride with this popular steam railway.
Rheged Centre, Penrith
It’s amazing what you can discover on a rainy day in the Lake District, this disused quarry for example. Now converted into an underground 3D cinema!
Honister Slate Mines
As for a piece of local history, Honister Slate Mines offer an alternative to the underground experience, where you can book a guided tour.
Penrith Swimming Pool
Although we would, of course, say dive into the pool at our Aphrodite’s Lodge Spa Hotel, the Penrith swimming pool offers a great alternative.
Zefirellis Cinema, Ambleside
Even though you can easily watch a film at any time of the year, visiting Zeffirellis in Ambleside is much more than just a cinema. There’s the onsite restaurant as well as live entertainment at the adjacent jazz café.
The Lakes Distillery in Keswick
While a spa break in the Lake District is the chance to unwind, a rainy day in the Lake District doesn’t have to mean stopping in the pub. Why not book an afternoon out at the Lakes Distillery instead?
Lakeland Shop, Windermere
Having rebranded itself in 1997 from Lakeland Plastics to Lakeland Limited, its headquarters remain firmly in Windermere. As such, the local store from the Kitchenware firm is the perfect place to pick up some shopping for back home on a rainy day.
The World of Beatrix Potter
It’s always a firm favourite on our list of things to do in Windermere regardless of if it’s a rainy day or not. The World of Beatrix Potter continues to be one of the most popular attractions in Windermere.
Lakes Aquarium, Windermere
Another of the popular attractions in Windermere is the Lakes Aquarium, with a huge display of marine life. What’s more, it’s only a stones throw from our spa suites.
Windermere Beauty Treatments
Finally on our list of things to do on a rainy day in the Lake District is our main Aphrodite’s Lodge Spa Hotel. Where you can treat yourself to a range of beauty treatments.
