England's Largest Natural Lake!

Lake Windermere is the largest natural lake in England at 10.5 miles long by 1 mile wide. It's over 200 feet deep and fed by many local rivers. The main town is Bowness on Windermere and other popular ports of call are Ambleside Waterhead and Lakeside Pier.

Lake Windermere is always crowded especially in the summer and even busy during the week at off peak season!
