The town is busy for much of the year, with people who come to enjoy the facilities of the lake for sailing, fishing and watersports, also those who come just to relax and enjoy the atmosphere of the area and the town’s delightful setting. Lake Windermere has been a water highway for centuries and is the headquarters of the Royal Windermere Yacht Club. It is the greatest centre in the district for cruising, water-skiing, underwater swimming and yachting. The lake is constantly busy with ferries, yachts and speedboats and interestingly Windermere is the only lake in the Lake District, which has no speed restriction for water traffic. Take a stroll around the shoreline which is a fascinating place, where boat builders and repairers can be seen at work. Victorian and Edwardian buildings are evident throughout Bowness, but for those who are interested in its earlier history a walk to Lowside, behind the church will prove rewarding. The houses and little narrow streets in this area of the town give a picture of Bowness before the advent of the railway.
