There are so many famous Children Stories but one stands out like none. Since many decades, generations have mesmerized reading the adventurous tale of Swallows & Amazons Adventure by the incredible children’s author, Arthur Ransome. But not many people know that the Adventure land mentioned in the book is not fictional. These beautiful places are inspired by the stunning landscape around Lake District. And the book contributes hugely to the tourist industry in the Lake District.
The major setting is Lake Windermere and the countryside of Conniston which accounts for multiple fictional locations where the protagonists lived their actions and voyaged around thrilling kayaking, sailing and hunting for the treasure.
If you are planning to spend some quality family time, then there is nothing more enchanting than exploring Lake district and conquering your own swallows and amazon’s adventurous excursion with antic activities like kayaking in the serene Lake while enjoying the relentless panoramas of surrounding fells.
Here you also get the opportunity to learn some sailing, do some fishing and have a picnic at the Keswick, savoring some tasty snacks around the natural setting.
Once you come to land, after some refreshing water activities, you can visit the Museum of Lakeland to know more about Ransome’s life.
Here is an Infographic by Craig Manor which steers to the scenic spots to take on the Swallows & Amazons Adventure journey aided with the activities to accomplish like treasure hunting, riding on Houseboat like Captain Flint’s to view the landmarks mentioned in the book, around Bowness on Windermere, Windermere, and Derwentwater.
This one family trip is assuredly going to be fun and memorable and will leave an everlasting reminiscence, for life.
