Newby Bridge, a gem of place to visit in the Lake District

Newby Bridge, located at the southern end of Lake Windermere and often a newly discovered gem for most on their first visit.

Although it has a pier at Lakeside just minutes away for the iconic ferries running up and down Lake Windermere, the area is great for those who don’t want the ice cream stalls and huge hustle and bustle of Bowness and Waterhead especially when it comes to a place to stay.

But Newby Bridge has so much to do including some of the biggest attractions in the county yet manages to combine it with a slower, more tranquil and peaceful way to enjoy a day out or holiday. Attractions and activities include the Holehird Gardens, Lakes Aquarium, Lakeland Motor Museum, the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway and the brand new Cliffhanger Rooms – the live adventure game so something for all from children to adults of any age.
