Weather’s nice and you feel like escaping the city? Pack a lunch bag and take the kids to Coniston Water - the 5th largest lake near Coniston village. It’s an atmospheric location with spectacular scenic views of The Eastern Fells of Fairfield and Helvellyn.

If you’re visiting Coniston Water in spring or summer, you can explore the lake by boat. You can take a historic boat tour on the National Trust’s Victorian Steam Yacht Gondola, or simply enjoy one of the hourly Coniston Launch boat trips.

Coniston Water has plenty of history to offer, including the story of the water speed record of 1939 and the legendary Campbell Bluebird disappearance. Read up on the area before you go and you’ll have lots of cool stories to tell the kids on the way there.
