Let’s be upfront here: you’re not going to the Lake District for a big night out and world-class nightlife. More likely is a quiet pint of real ale and maybe a trip to the cinema or the theatre.
However, if a quiet pint or a cheeky glass of wine amidst relaxed, stunning surroundings is your idea of a dream night out, then you will be spoilt for choice in the Lake District. What better way to unwind after a hard day’s walking, shopping, exploring or simply chilling out?
For those seeking more cultural diversions, there are a number of arts centres, theatres and live music venues offering local talent and well-known names.
