August Bank Holiday

If you haven't managed to get away this year, it's not too late. How about a Bank Holiday escape to the beautiful Lake District to wrap up your summer in style?
If you want to escape the big urban events that go on over August Bank Holiday the Lakes offer a peaceful retreat – but there's still lots going on.
The 2019 Annual Grasmere Lakeland Sports now celebrating 169 years of existence has been a regular annual event since 1868. Now one of the most popular traditional events in the English Lake District participants compete in a variety of sports, including Cumberland Wrestling, Fell running and Hound Trails. Sunday 25th August
The Keswick Show is a Bank Holiday Monday favourite. On Monday 26th August it showcases everything from livestock and pets to home baking and crafts – not to mention Cumberland and Westmorland wrestling!
