Enjoyable time at the Pencil Museum
Last week I was lucky enough to visit The Lake District. I decided it would be nice to visit the pencil museum. It's a brilliant place to go on a rainy day if you were looking for somewhere to spend your time. It's very interesting and the staff are extremely friendly and very helpful. The shops have great stocks and is perfect if you are an artist or interested in art.

Re. Coastal Railway Trip
That sounds like a great idea. We were on a tight budget so we couldn't rent a car and we also heard that there are parking restrictions and high fees in some towns. Instead we traveled the area by bus but it was more difficult because we had to carefully plan our trip to fit in with the bus schedule and the buses didn't go to some of the areas we really wanted to visit. Next time we will try the train.

Coastal Railway Trip
We took the coastal railway to explore many hidden villages between Carlisle and Barrow-in-Furness. There weren't many tourists and it was great to experience daily life in a local village.

Bicycle Adventures
We went exploring by bicycle and stopped at charming restaurants along the way. The best part was that we could catch the train back after an exhausting day of cycling. We were lucky that there was no rain but it is advisable to be prepared for bad weather.

Walking in the National Park
Enjoyed walking in the national park and there were many paths to choose from including more strenuous hikes through the mountains. Take a map to make it easier to find your way around.

Boat Trips
The lake was so beautiful that we just had to go on a boat trip. We chose Windermere Lake but there are also boats on Ullswater and Coniston.
