This is what Lake Windermere is internationally known for

Picturesque Lake Windermere attracts large numbers of visitors each year and is renowned nationally and internationally for the stunning scenery that stretches around England's largest lake, surrounded by the quaint villages of Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside.

Bowness-on-Windermere, with its romantic northern English charm and location directly on the lake, as well as its numerous local restaurants, pubs and shops, is a popular and well-known place for tourists. There are also a wide range of leisure activities on Lake Windermere, where you can, for example, do water sports, go hiking or cycling and be inspired by the beautiful natural scenery.

Not forgetting the award-winning Nazi historical drama The Children of Windermere (2020), which was filmed in the region and tells the story of a group of Holocaust survivors - and thus presents the scenic landscape from a slightly different angle. The film brought Lake Windermere international fame.

With its charm and diverse attractions, Lake Windermere is well worth a visit.
