Lake Windermere, Windermere

Lake Windermere, Windermere

At 16.9 km long, Lake Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. The town of Windermere was originally called Birthwaite but the name was changed when the train station decided to take its name after the lake.

The Romans built their fort of Galava at its northern end and the lake has been important for transport of heavy items for many years. In the late 19th century many mansions were built on the waterfront and you can admire them today if you take a trip on a vintage boat round the lake.

Bowness-on-Windermere is an excellent destination for boating enthusiasts, with over 10,000 boats registered on the lake. Steamers also operate across the water for those who prefer not to be in the driving seat. Looking for something more exciting? Not to worry, the lake is a very popular location for all kinds of watersports such as sailing and windsurfing too.
