Things to do in spring

Full moon night swims on Ullswater throughout the year.

Full Moon Swim – 9 March

The worm full moon will be in the sky around 6pm on March 9. Named after the tracks made by earthworms on the thawed grounds at this time of the year, the enlarged moon should cast a good light over the lake. To take advantage of this supermoon we will be holding our very first full moon night swim, with light-up tow floats and glow sticks.
