Silverdale is a beautiful place to visit at any time of year; as part of the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there’s plenty to do and see. Many people flock to the area during the beautiful summer months, but not many consider the area when planning a day out during winter.

It’s not just a summer-only destination, and there are many reasons why Silverdale can make the perfect winter day out for all the family.


Magical Winter Walks

The area surrounding Silverdale is perfect for heading out and exploring. With plenty of stunning walks, a beautiful promenade and plenty of woodlands, there’s something for everyone.

It might be a bit cold, but a good brisk walk along the beach or up and around Arnside Knott will warm you up, and you’ll be rewarded with amazing wintery views over the bay. Make sure to take adequate walking footwear as, although the walk isn’t difficult, if the weather is wet, you’ll want to be wearing something on your feet that can grip and deal with the rain.

There’s also RSPB Leighton Moss nearby, the visitor’s centre of which is open during the winter season up until the end of November. You can still take a wander around this beautiful area and maybe catch a glimpse of some of the local wildlife in their natural habitat.

Take a wander around some of the astonishing woodland areas around Silverdale. There are plenty of different areas to explore, each creating the perfect winter walk – and a great opportunity for some crisp wintery photographs, too!

Shop Local

Silverdale is a quaint little village and has some very unique little shops that are just waiting to be discovered.

Take a wander around and maybe pick up some unique local crafts made by the people of Silverdale as stocking fillers and support the small community while doing so. Even if you venture a little bit out of the village, there are plenty of small businesses selling various gifts, foods and produce.

Find something a little different and get to know some of the locals, too at the Wolf House Gallery where you can buy handmade gifts and original art – or enjoy some coffee and delicious homemade cake!
