Windermere is a town in Cumbria, England, lying about one kilometre away from the lake of the same name. Although Windermere confusingly does not touch the lake, it has now grown together with the older lakeside town of Bowness-on-Windermere, though the two retain distinguishable town centres. There are a number of museums, but the main draw for its many tourists is the lake. Boats from the piers in Bowness (about a fifteen-minute walk from the top of Windermere town) sail around the lake, many calling at Ambleside or at Lakeside where there is a restored railway.
Windermere is the largest natural lake in England, and is entirely within in the Lake District National Park. It has been one of the country's most popular places for holidays and summer homes since 1847, when the Kendal and Windermere Railway built a branch line to it. Lake Windermere is 10½ miles (17 km) long and varies from a quarter of a mile to one mile wide (400 m to 1500 m). It reaches a depth of about 220 feet (65 m) near its northern end and has an elevation above sea level of 130 feet (40 m). The lake is drained from its southernmost point by the River Leven. There are two towns which border the lake, Ambleside and Bowness-on-Windermere.
The lake is largely surrounded by foot-hills of the Lake District which provide pleasant low-level walks; to the north and north-east are the higher fells of Central Lakeland.
Windermere town itself offers a wide range of shops and restaurants including a large Booths supermarket and a smaller Morrisons and Co-op. Windermere is an excellent location for exploring the wider Lake District and Lake Windermere, or you can walk from the flat into the surrounding hills or countryside.
Local attractions include a variety of National Trust properties and gardens, Blackwell arts and craft house, Ruskin's house at Brantwood and Beatrix Potter's house and museum.
