   Lake District
Grasmere is pretty much the central point of the Lake District - a pretty village of craft shops and tea rooms, where Wordsworth made his home at Dove Cottage. Thankfully there's lots to do on the hills here, and Club trips to Grasmere usually cater for a good variety of abilities. The dour bulk of the Fairfield Horseshoe to the east of the village provides a strenuous challenge and excellent views given good weather. Smaller but by no means less attractive is Helm Crag, a sharply pointed peak which can be taken on its own or as a prelude to higher summits on Grasmere Common or Steel Fell. The Langdale Pikes are accessible from here, and the tiny Loughrigg, across the waters of Grasmere from the village, provides some of Lakeland's most appealing views for very little effort! Grasmere trips often strongly feature Ambleside to the south, where there's a lot to do on a rainy day - gear shops, cafe's and some excellent pubs and chippys. This makes a Grasmere trip a good introduction to LUHC as there's never a shortage of things to do.
