Windermere

Windermere is a town in Cumbria. Unless you are local, the town is often confused with the lake itself, with which it shares the name.

Train

Windermere is at the end of a branch line from Oxenholme on the main West Coast route from London to Scotland. Trains run every hour or so.

The train station is above the town, a few minutes walk from the centre. The station forecourt has bus stops with frequent service into the town and to Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside, and a taxi rank.

Bus

There is one coach per day to and from London. Local bus services run to and from Kendal, Lancaster and Keswick as well as to destinations throughout the Lake District.

Get around

The town is small enough to walk around easily. Buses run to the adjoining town, Bowness-on-Windermere, on the Windermere lake front (or you can walk there in around 20 minutes).
