Things to do when it rains in the Lake District.

If you are holidaying in the Lake District, the chances are that rain may be forecast for one or more of the days. There's no getting around it, the Lake District can be a bit wet sometimes! However it's not all bad news. You could consider doing something you may never have done before, the perfect rainy day activity - having your own photo shoot. It's a great experience for families, individuals, children and couples!

If you don't mind a few scattered showers throughout the day then an outdoor photo shoot on location in the Lake District is a great way to capture images of your stay. It can often be sunny between rain showers and the rainfall actually makes the grass appear greener in the photos too. Perfect for capturing that romantic break for just the two of you or to capture the activities of the whole family.

A dry activity for when the rain is set to last all day is to book an indoor studio photoshoot. Our photography studio in the historic town of Kendal is just a short drive away from some of the most popular Lake District locations; Windermere: 15 minutes, Bowness: 20 minutes, Ambleside: 25 minutes. We can accommodate individuals, couples, accompanied children or family groups. We love dogs too so they are welcome to come and have their photo taken with you or in their own photo shoot.

Kendal offers a great day out and boasts historic buildings, plenty of cafes, restaurants, pubs, tearooms and other attractions. Your studio photo shoot will last for around 1-1½ hours so there will be plenty of time to explore the local area afterwards, should you wish to.

All photographs are taken by Paul and there is a wide range of photo shoots to choose from. How about one of these for a wet weather activity in Bowness, Windermere, Ambleside, Kendal, Grange-over-Sands or the surrounding area?:

A photo shoot makes a lovely gift experience too so if you are visiting the area to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or engagement then why not book Paul to capture the moment?

    All portrait photo shoots need to be pre-booked so that we can secure the time for you, however we can sometimes accommodate studio bookings at short notice. Contact the studio and we would be happy to discuss options with you to help make the most of your visit to the Lake District.
