Things To Do

The World of Beatrix Potter

Begin your experience with a 5 minute film introducing you to the author, her stories and illustrations. The doors from the film room open to the main exhibition in which the sights and sounds of Beatrix Potter's much loved characters are magically brought to life.

Tickets are included in the Beatrix Potter Experience for a family of up to 2 Adults and 2 Children.

Safari Zoo

Guests at Macdonald Old England Hotel & Spa will receive 25% off their tickets to South Lakes Safari Zoo. Take in the amazing animals or opt for something completely different like ‘Becoming a Zoo Keeper for the Day' or taking part in feeding time. This is truly a day out that the whole family will love.

Wreay Skye Alpacas

For a completely different activity to do with the family, why not try the Alpaca Trek and Picnic. Start by taking the Alpaca’s across ‘The Helm’ followed by a picnic. Take in the most amazing sights of both the Lake District Fells, the Yorkshire Dales and the Cumbrian Sea coast all at the same time. This is an experience that will keep all the family talking for a long time.

Brockhole on Windermere

The perfect wet & dry weather attraction. Whether you are looking for tree top trekking, archery, kayak tour or 'Brave the Cave', this is the perfect day out. Complete with indoor play area, picnic seating and café, this really is a fun-filled family day out.
