Hawkshead is steeped in history, making it a popular holiday destination in the Lake District. Some of the thirty eight buildings of architectural or historic interest in Hawkshead include St Michael’s & All Angels church, Market Place, The Spout House and the Methodist Chapel.
For the younger members of your group there is plenty of Beatrix Potter attractions to enjoy, including Beatrix’s own farm Hill Top, a gallery of her work and nature trail along the shores of Esthwaite water. The National Trust Wray Castle is a must with the children too!
