Windermere Overview

Windermere, and its nearby neighbour Bowness on Windermere are situated at the southern end of the English Lake District, Cumbria. Windermere the lake, on the shore of which both towns lie is the largest lake in the England.

Lake Windermere is the only lake in the Lake District which allows the use of motorised boats, and this possibly explains why it’s one of the busiest towns in the area, with many pubs, shops and restaurants to occupy a variety of tastes. The town is probably the most popular with day trippers and has a much more 'touristy' feel than some of the other nearby towns.

Windermere is also one of the very few towns in the region that is serviced by a train station and is therefore the starting point for many visitors arriving by this means.

If the weather is good, Windermere is a picture perfect English countryside town, however, due to where it’s situated in the UK, this seldom happens. None the less a beautiful tourist hotspot and a must see to any who venture to the North of England.
