    Buttermere street scene

    Well, I think that in winter you should definately go by car,as you still see the most. And you can take those small and funny roads.... I guess in summer it can be a nightmare to get a parking somewhere, not to think of possible traffic jams at the main tourist interests. There are bus links between all parts of the countryside.

    Ferry Across Windermere

    Ferry crossing

    A nice experiance is to cross Lake Windermere by ferry, you can cross as a foot passenger or by car. The journey is quite a small one, but it is well worth taking. There are many boat trips around Windermere but this one has a slightly more practical purpose and is quite cheap compared.
    The ferry only holds 16 cars so sometimes a cue is inevitable.

    Boat Tour in Lake District

    If you don't wish to hike your way around the scenery of the Lake District, then hop aboard a cruise boat for a relaxing trip along whichever lake you decide to visit. This is perfect for those who aren't physically cabable of hiking the hills and peaks of the area.
    There are numerous boat tours to choose from, just look around at whichever lakeside town you are in.

    Train

    First you take the train from "Euston Station" in London to Oxenholme. Then you have to take another train from Oxenholme to Windermere. If you want to stay in Ambleside or Grasmere, you have to take the bus. So, before you go there, you should decide where to stay. Or you can stay in Windermere for few days and then move to another places as you like.

    ow to get hereBy car: from...

    ow to get here
    By car: from the M6 motorway, exiting at Kendal or Penrith.

    By train: From London, take the West Coast line (trains to Glasgow or Preston). Change at Preston/Lancaster for trains to Barrow and the furness peninsula. Change at Oxenholme for trains to Kendal & Windermer. Change at Carlisle for trains to the West Coast (Workington, Whitehaven etc). Trains also go direct to Barrow and Windermere from Manchester airport.
    Getting around
    Public transport and on foot are the best ways to view the area, if not the most convenient. So many cars come to the area during the summer that restrictions on entry are likely to apply in the near future. If you can visit using public transport, we strongly urge you to. This helps us all to keep the Lake District as clean and beautiful as you expect it to be. If you do bring your car, please try to leave it at your hotel as much as possible. Several services are also available for walkers that make life easier - eg, you can have your bags collected from one hotel and delivered to another, allowing you to enjoy the day and walk to your next destination easily.
