Tourist Information

Things to see & do in Ambleside

Ambleside is at the heart of the central and south lakes visitor experience, and bristles with activity as well as an ideal base for exploring the county.

Ambleside is largely Victorian. A fort beside Borrans Park – named Galava – was built in Ambleside by the Romans, housing some 500 soldiers.

A short walk from the centre of the village leads to Stock Ghyll Force, a spectacular 70 foot waterfall which may be viewed safely from a railed viewpoint. In spring the area under the trees is a carpet of daffodils.
