Bowness and Windermere in the English Lake District...
town of of Bowness-on-Windermere and village of Windermere
are located on the eastern side of Lake Windermere - the largest
lake in England.
frequented by the Victorian gentry as a holiday destination,
the area is today popular with visitors of all ages looking
for a central location from which to enjoy the beauty of the
English Lake District.
William Wordsworth, who for a time lived in Grasmere
just up the road, was also a regular visitor and patronised
the White Lion (now the Royal Hotel) as well as a frequent
user of the Lake Windermere ferry which still runs taking
visitors from just outside the town of Bowness across to Sawrey
on the western side of the lake.
