It is well known that beautiful spots in the Lake District, such as Borrowdale, are among the rainiest in the country. But with a good quality raincoat, walking trousers and waterproof boots you will forget at times that the sun has gone missing and will admire the dramatic scenery. Our website has many pages and blog articles detailing what to see and do: rainy day attractions are among the, along with some ideas of what to explore in Cumbria.
Don’t forget, the weather changes so quickly in these parts, that what looks to be the start of a sunny warm day; can soon become a mighty downpour, a very draughty experience, or both! The prevailing westerly winds from the Atlantic bring in the rain heavy clouds and when they touch the fells the water can fall in sheets! But, the grass remains green, the becks and waterfalls cascade and the lakes will shimmer when the sun returns.
