Newby Bridge Certificated Locations

Situated at the southern end of Lake Windermere, Newby Bridge in Cumbria makes for a beautiful base from which to explore the Furness Peninsula and the southern Lakeland area.

As well as being a haven for hikers, Newby Bridge boasts strong literary connections. Visit the Newby Bridge Hotel to find out about its original owner’s friendship with William Wordsworth, or how Arthur Ransome - author of Swallows and Amazons - used to stay there.

At the Lakeside Pier, visitors can board a steam train to Haverthwaite, or hop on a boat to Waterhead or Bowness. The Aquarium of the Lakes is also located at the pier, where animal enthusiasts can find out about the wildlife that dwells in and around the lake.
