The Lake District is filled with fun and exciting things to see and do for all the family of all ages. To simply enjoy the breathtaking views while on your journey to the Lake District is one thing but what can you do when you get there.
Muncaster offers a mine field of Lake District attractions in one place. As Cumbria covers a vast area it's also nice to know that all your requirements can be met at one establishment.
If travelling with children and being brave enough to venture out, Muncaster can especially cater for our little ones with many an activity to ensure they have a fun packed day with lots to see and do.
When browsing through brochures and wondering where or what to do that can offer perfect Lake District attractions without the need to rush other places for food or accommodation then Muncaster fits the bill in all aspects of the term!
Often we are geared for our holidays, destination firmly imprinted, accommodation sorted but then the last thing that we rarely consider and which only hits us once we arrive and unpack and have a chance to unwind is "what are we going to do?"

One of the country's most beautiful and historic spots, possibly one the world's great places to visit, the Lake District. Made famous for its mountainous landscapes, Muncaster is nestled on the West coast of this highly tourism populated area. If looking for culture and remnants of history then Muncaster has the facility to satisfy that craving. Muncaster holds many events including haunted night for Halloween and Easter egg hunts for the Easter holidays. Offering facilities for school visits to the castle grounds and birds of prey centre it really is spectacular whatever the weather. While at the castle you can take five and relax at Creeping Kate's Kitchen serving sumptuous treats. Once fully recuperated and refreshed you are then fit to tackle the rest of the Muncaster castle grounds. With so much on offer you may find that you'll be right back the following day to discover other areas you missed the day before.
How else could we describe this colourful event? This is by far one of Cumbria's favourite annual events, the Festival of Fools offer the opportunity to place a smile on anyone's face. A sample of this year's highlights and performers as follows:
New for 2010 - We had Tom Fool's Foolish Flyer Zip Wire! From Tom's Tree in front of the Castle zoom at speeds of over 35MPH, 200 metres towards the River Esk. There were various side shows including a giant bouncy pirate ship, foolish ferret racing, as well as a bar and BBQ each day in the Marquee, plus all Muncaster's usual attractions - so why not come and enjoy next years Festival!
Muncaster Castle, never a dull moment!!
