ART AND LITERATURE
Grasmere - and the wider Lake District - has a long history of inspiring art and literature. Grasmere continues to encourage people to carry that tradition forward in new and creative ways.
Visitors can explore the cultural history of the area, or indeed their own personal creativity, during their stay. It is well-worth staying that little bit longer in order to do this.
Some Grasmere locations that might be of interest are:
