Discover places to see and things to do whilst in and around Windermere, Cumbria to truly enhance your stay come rain or shine!

Ulverston A fine example of an old market town, Ulverston is a labyrinth of cobbled streets and old buildings set in the centre of the Furness peninsula. A quirky attraction is the Laurel and Hardy Museum, housed within the beautiful 1920s Roxy Cinema. The town is also the start of the 70-mile Cumbrian Way and home to the world's shortest, deepest and widest canal.

Festival Fun Ulverston is often called the "festival town", with events taking place all throughout the year. From live music to comedy, art and food; join in the local festivities and have yourself a good old knees up! A highlight is the Dickensian Christmas festival, where visitors are encouraged to don their most festive attire and join in.

On the Literary Trail No visit to the Lake District is complete without a visit to the the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction complete with Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Squirrel Nutkin and all the gang. Look out for Mr McGregor!

Swallows and Amazons Fans of the Swallows and Amazons stories will enjoy taking a boat cruise around the places surrounding Coniston Water which Arthur Ransome used to populate the imaginary lake of his books, including Wild Cat Island.

Fishing The Lake District offers great fishing opportunities with breathtaking scenery. A site of Special Scientific Interest because of its international importance as a wetland, Esthwaite Water has a large population of wild birds and in the summer the fisherfolk among you could be competing with the ospreys that visit the lake.  

Turrets and Towers Take a visit to the mock-Gothic Wray Castle which sits on the shores of Lake Windermere. The grounds are open to the public and are well worth visiting to see the specimen trees; wellingtonia, redwood, gingkoa, weeping lime, and varieties of beech. Dalton Castle is also well worth a visit; a 14th-century tower built to assert the authority of the Abbot of Furness Abbey.
