Things to see & do in Newby Bridge

Newby Bridge is a small hamlet in the Lake District, and is a convenient base for you to explore the Furness peninsula and southern Lakeland areas. It got its name from the five-arched stone bridge built across the river in 1651. It caters mainly for the passing tourist trade, and has a railway station on the preserved Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway.

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 the National Trust’s garden at Fell Foot.

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.
