Local Food

Sunderland and its surrounding area has a great selection of restaurants for you to visit. One place you really should try is The Fell Restaurant located in the Pheasant Hotel. It uses the best local produce and has very high standards of service. One dish not to miss is the twice baked toast cheese soufflé.

Another great place to visit is The Lakes Distillery where they make their own whisky, gin and vodka. During your visit you can take a tour following their special production methods and of course, taste some yourself. It's also home to a restaurant called The Bistro. Located in a former cattle parlour, the restaurant serves lots of great food made with the highest quality local ingredients.


Just nine miles from Sunderland is the Theatre by the Lake. Set on the shores of the Derwent Lake the theatre has two stages and shows a wide selection of performances year round. The theatre's own shows have won many awards and they also host many touring productions making the theatre well worth a visit. The Theatre also has a café serving tea and coffee and can even serve you a tasty dinner before an evening show.


You can't visit the Lake District without fully exploring the beautiful lakes and the best way to do that is from the water itself. The Derwent Water Marina offers boat hire or if you want something more adrenaline-pumping then they also offer lessons in windsurfing, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding.

Mountain Biking

If you're a keen mountain biker then the Lake District is the perfect place to visit. Just a short nine mile drive from Sunderland will lead you to the Whinlatter Forest Park. The park has the longest mountain bike trail in the Lake District called the Altura Trail.

The trail is 12 miles long and offers stunning views of Derwent Lake as it climbs to an altitude of 500m. Don't worry if you haven't brought your own bike as the visitor centre at the start of trail offers bike hire and runs courses to teach beginners.
