  • Next we’ll be visiting Bowness-on-Windermere, a picturesque town located on the shores of Lake Windermere. You can take a leisurely stroll along the lakefront promenade and enjoy views of the largest natural lake in England. It is also home to the World of Beatrix Potter.
  • You’ll then have some free time to continue exploring everything that Windermere has to offer.
  • We’ll then be returning back to the pick-up spot after an unforgettable day.
  • As the largest natural lake in England, Lake Windermere is the centrepiece of the area. Take time to admire the surrounding fells and enjoy the serene waters.
