Dales Way

Mile 82

Bowness-on-Windermere

A bustling tourist town on the shores of England's largest lake, Bowness-on-Windermere should not be confused with Windermere, which although part of the same civil parish, has a distinct and separate town centre. Bowness-on-Windemere marks the end of the Dales Way walk, and with its many shops, pub, restaurants and hotels, it is an ideal place to unwind after the physical efforts of your walk. During the 19th century, Bowness-on-Windermere grew from a small fishing village to a town living almost entirely off tourism and holiday homes. It was the centre of the boat-building industry that provided the sailing yachts, rowing boats and steam launches used on the lake.
