Windermere is the largest lake in the country and is part of the Lake District National Park. This natural ribbon lake was formed in a glacial trough following the retreat of ice at the beginning of the current interglacial period.

The main town, Bowness-on-Windermere is a famous tourist destination and is home to many restaurants, shops and galleries. It also offers several water-sport activities such as boating and swimming. With all the surrounding mountains and villages in the area, Lake District is also popular for biking and hiking. This town gets very busy in the summer time.
