A view from Harrowslack on Lake Windermere's western shore

This side of Windermere is great to discover by boat, bike and boot, and you can easily cross off some 50 Things activities as you explore the lake shore.

Most of our ranger-led organised activities happen at Wray Castle and on Windermere west shore.

The best place to find out what's happening is our Wray Castle Events page where you'll find the latest news, or visit our Facebook page for up to date event details.

Helping to keep the family entertained

The outdoor play area at Wray Castle will keep everyone entertained!

The whole area around here is great for family fun, especially cycling along the Windermere west shore track, arriving in style on the boat from Bowness and exploring Hill Top house.

If the Lakes weather is putting a bit of a dampener on things, we've got loads of opportunities for indoor fun for all the family, at Wray Castle.

Check out the  Wray Castle website for more info on events, activities and facilities.
