Things to do in Grasmere

The Cumbrian village of Grasmere occupies an enviable position on the pretty River Rothay, which flows south into Grasmere Lake, just half a kilometre away. Overlooked from the North West by Helm Crag, an impressive, rocky hill that features interesting formations on its summit. Grasmere was home to the famous poet William Wordsworth for many years, and his tombstone, along with his wife’s, can be seen at the historic local church, St Oswald’s. This is one of many period buildings in this picturesque village, and the unspoilt local countryside gives visitors the opportunity to explore the Lake District at its very best.
