Bowness-on-Windermere is the main tourist centre for the South Lakes area of Lake District National Park.It lies within The Historic County Boundaries of Westmorland.
It is about a mile from the Windermere railway station which links to Oxenholme (near Kendal) on the west coast main line. One can walk, if one likes, from Windermere station to Bowness. Alternatively, buses are available every 20 minutes from the railway station to the ferry jetty. Taxis are also available. If there is a group of 4-5 people, taxis may be economically more viable, because buses would cost almost as much.
