OUT AND ABOUT
The World of Beatrix Potter Once you have paid your entrance fee, you are shown a short film about the world of Beatrix potter and its history. Here you can experience all of the twenty three Beatrix potter tales; these are brought to life in an indoor recreation of the beautiful lake district. You can experience some of the sights, sounds and even smells, so this is just like stepping into the story book.
The museum is really quite small, to look at but it is packed with big human size models of the Beatrix creations, Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddleduck, Miss Tiggy Winkle and all of the other characters created by the legendary Beatrix Potter.
Brockhole Visitor Centre There are free exhibitions, indoor soft play and creativity space and an adventure playground for children as well as extensive gardens and lakeshore. New for 2012 is aerial woodland adventure Treetop Trek and wildlife experience Predator Park. There are also lots of events and activities from archery to raft-building - check out what's on.
Via Ferrata at Honister Pass It is an amazing journey across the imposing Honister Crag using fixed iron footholds and handholds. You will cross zipwires and climb sheer cliff faces safe in the knowledge you are securely joined to the mountain by a strong safety cable! A truly unforgettable experience.
South Lakes Wild Animal Park Upon entry to the park you will soon realise there is minimal fencing between you and the animals. Limas, emus, pigs, donkeys and kangaroos pretty much roam free. This gives a great feel of being in the zoo rather than just wandering about it. Food is available from the gift shop to feed quite a few of these animals with.
At certain times you can feed the giraffes and penguins by hand and watch the tigers being fed. The tigers are made to climb a 30ft pole for their food.

Award winning Muncaster has something for everyone, throughout the year. New for the millennium was the Meadow Vole Maze - where you can imagine being a meadow vole, just two and a half inches tall, living in meadowland, where danger lurks at every turn. In the Meadow Vole Maze the secret world of wildlife makes a wild experience. You may meet Max Meadowvole, who will help you get home safely

Townend House Atmospheric farmhouse full of quirky objects and fascinating stories. The Brownes of Townend in the Troutbeck valley were just an ordinary farming family but their home and belongings bring to life more than 400 years of extraordinary stories. As you approach Townend - a traditional stone and slate farmhouse, you'll understand why Beatrix Potter described Troutbeck valley as her favourite.
Once inside, you are welcomed into the farmhouse kitchen with a real fire - burning most days - and a quirky collection of domestic tools. Exploring further, you can marvel at the intricately carved furniture and discover why the collection of books belonging to this farming family is of international importance.
Wray Castle This is not a real castle but a private house built in in the Gothic Revival Style in 1840. It was built for Dr James Dawson, a retired Liverpool surgeon, and is now owned by the National Trust. The house was built using his wife's inheritance from a gin fortune. Apparently she took one look at the house when it was finished, and refused to live in it.
Lakeland Motor Museum The fascinating Lakeland Motor Museum nestles in the picturesque Leven Valley, at Backbarrow, close to the southern tip of Lake Windermere.
A diverse and unique road transpost collection of some 30,000 exhibits assembled over a period of almost 50 years is thoughtfully displayed alongside many non-motoring additions, in fully DDA compliant state-of-the-art premises with a beautiful riverside setting.
