Top Attractions in the Lake District



#01 - Low Wray Castle (Ambleside)

low wray castle in ambleside the county of cumbria
This is not a real castle but a private house built in in the Gothic Revival Style in 1840. It was built for Dr Dawson, a retired Liverpool surgeon, and is now owned by the National Trust. The house was built using his wife's inheritance from a gin fortune. Apparently she took one look at the house when it was finished, and refused to live in it. The architect, H.P. Horner, drank himself to death.

After Dr Dawson's death in 1875, when he was 96, the estate was inherited by his nephew, Preston Rawnsley. In 1877 Preston's cousin, Hardwicke Rawnsley, took up the appointment of vicar of Wray Church (next to the Castle and built at the same time by Dr Dawson). In 1929 Wray Castle and 64 acres of land were given to the National Trust by Sir Noton and Lady Barclay.

The grounds are open to the public, and are well worth visiting for the sake of the specimen trees - wellingtonia, redwood, gingkoa, weeping lime and varieties of beech. There is a mulberry tree planted by William Wordsworth in 1845. Watbarrow Wood is the wooded bank between the castle and the lake, and has several pleasant paths leading through it to the water's edge. There are spectacular views across Windermere. The castle is occasionally open to the public.

Over the last few years the grounds have been undergoing a major restoration by the National Trust, to try and restore them to how they would have looked when the house was built. This will give impressive views to Windermere lake from a variety of directions.

More information and some stunning photographs can be found at www.visitcumbria.com.

#16 - Windermere Lake Cruises(Windermere)

Windermere Lake Cruises, Boat Trip
The old steamers (now, of course, driven by diesel engines) have had a long history. Brought in pieces from the shipbuilders at Barrow, they were assembled at various times over the past 150 years on the shore of Windermere. After passing through the hands of good old British Railways, and being somewhat neglected in the process, they have moved into the good care of the Windermere Steamboat Company. Any adult who visited the Lakes as a child will have fond memories of the excitement of setting out for a day trip down the Lake, and even with the passage of time, a trip on these beautifully restored steamers has lost none of its appeal for children and adults alike!

The boats operate every day between Ambleside, Bowness and Lake Side, near Newby Bridge. Seasonal connections operate for Brockhole, Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway, Fell Foot and Ferry House.

Evening Cruises and Jazz/Buffet Cruises operate during the summer. Island cruises sail daily from Bowness. You can also enjoy Santa Specials and Christmas Lunch Cruises.

There has been a Ruskin Museum in Coniston since 1901, when W.G. Collingwood, a local artist and antiquarian who had been Ruskin's secretary, set it up both as a memorial to Ruskin and a celebration of the area's heritage. Therefore, although the museum has a Ruskin collection, there are also exhibits relating to the coppermines, slate, geology, lace, farming and Donald Campbell. The museum was extended in 1999 with the help of a Heritage Lottery grant; additional building with modern design-work, computer displays, and hands-on exhibits have transformed the look of the two galleries.

Find out about the Campbells and their dare devil speed attempts on Coniston Water as well as the 'Swallows and Amazons' connections and much much more.
