Visiting the Lake District on a Budget

As well as planning things to do in the Lake District on a budget in advance, it’s always a good idea to consider your spending money too. That way, there are no hidden surprises when it comes to opening your wallet or entering your pin at the case machine.

If you’re thinking of eating out, for example, consider your food options before you leave the house. It doesn’t mean you need to decide what to eat, but at least you have an idea of what’s on the menu.

Likewise, those nights out at a local bar or extra little treats along the way, you can always pay with cash. Have a pre-determined spend in mind and resist the temptation to use your card. That way, you can only use the money physically in your pocket.
