Thread: What to see in Grasmere?

  1. #1

    What to see in Grasmere?

    The wife and I are off for a day out to Grasmere on Wednesday. Even though the weather is not looking good we are determined to enjoy our day out together so can anyone suggest anything/anywhere of interest to visit or see while we are there please?
    Weather permitting we are both more interested in the photographic side of things rather than just walking around the shops!

    A stroll around grasmere is very pleasant and if you want a nice drive head over to Keswick. If you are more energetic pick a fell and climb it. I'm not a big one for shops but I always pick up some grasmere gingerbread from the pukka shop when I'm there

    There's a good path along a terrace on the Western edge of Grasmere that takes you to Loughrigg Fell - it's a good summit for photography. Or go up Helm Crag and along the ridge. Or take the car to the top of Kirkstone Pass and walk from there

    Thanks for the suggestions. It's a coach trip so driving anywhere myself isn't possible.

    The gingerbread shop next to the church.
    I never make the same mistake twice.

    I make it five or six times.

    Just to be sure.

    Yes, the wife has mentioned that we should visit there! I'm rather partial to a bit of gingerbread.
