The Watery World At Lakes Aquarium:
Lakeside is 2 miles north of Newby Bridge at the southern end of Windermere.
It has a large hotel – ‘The Lakeside Hotel’ – and a bustling railway station for the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway.
It is also the most southerly terminus for the Windermere Cruise boats from Bowness and Ambleside.
Furthermore, right next door to the station is the Lakes Aquarium.
The aquarium explores the amazing underwater watery world, ranging from Africa through to Morecambe Bay.
Additionally, along with the usual fishy inhabitants, the aquarium is home to a boa constrictor, a family of marmosets and a pair of short-clawed otters.
Undoubtedly, the highlight though is the underwater tunnel.
The tunnel simulates a trip deep beneath Windermere’s surface, complete with carp, char and diving ducks.
Joint tickets to include a Windermere cruise or a trip on a steam train on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway are available to purchase.
