Car park, Broadgate, Grasmere

Broadgate is one of the three main car parks found in Grasmere. They all charge what may be considered over the odds, but I suppose parking in an area with so many walking options does come with a high price tag.

In addition to the walking on offer, the car park is within a minutes walk from the centre of Grasmere and everything it has to tempt the visitor.

A rather wintry looking Grasmere.

There was no need to bother about traffic today.


Talk about tame. I think this robin just wanted to have its photo taken.

The view back towards Geasmere.

Shortly after taking this picture we left the road and headed down to the lake.

No boating today.
