Lakeside Pier is at the southern end of Englands largest lake, Windermere where you can arrive by boat from Waterhead or Bowness. There is also a ferry across the short distance to Fell Foot.
Lakeside Pier is one end of the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, in which you can travel by steam train 3.5 miles via Newby Bridge to Haverthwaite, along the old Furness line that used to go to Ulverston and Barrow.
Here also is the Aquarium of the Lakes, where you can discover in over 30 displays the fascinating and often secret world of wildlife and freshwater creatures dwelling in and alongside these magnificent waters.
The English Heritage owned Stott Park Bobbin Mill is only a short walk away, at Finsthwaite (about 1/2 mile).
There is a gift shop within the aquarium, and a restaurant on the Pier with panoramic views of Windermere. There is ample parking.
