What’s on in the Lake District in February 2019
Although a relatively peaceful month, there’s still plenty to do in the Lake District in February. In fact, it’s often a time of the year when the natural countryside starts to come into fruition.
As you take a walk through the countryside, there may still be a cold breeze in the air but the scenery is still just as beautiful. There’s an array of flower and fauna that are suited towards the colder months, while the emergence of daffodils starts to indicate spring is on the way.
While the Great British weather is always somewhat unpredictable, the Lake District in February should still be fully operational. The Windermere Lake Cruises and local train lines start to run full timetables, while other main attractions are open to the public. Just, visiting the Lake District in February you’re likely to avoid the crowds.
That is, of course, unless you book during the half-term holiday. As such, what’s on in the Lake District in February can often cater for those still at school. If it’s a quitter, more romantic break in the Lake District you’re after, there’s still lots to keep you occupied.
