The second largest lake in the Lake District
Lake Ullswater is the second biggest stretch of water in the Lake District. At nearly nine miles long and over three quarters of a mile wide, and with a depth of 60 metres, it’s a veritable inland sea. It’s a place of outstanding natural beauty and has been likened to Lake Lucerne in Switzerland.
Lake cruises and walking
Lake Ullswater is of course a huge tourist attraction, and water activities abound. The Ullswater steamers are a great draw. Visitors can take a tour around the lake, which takes in Glenridding, Howtowm, and Pooley Bridge. One of the most popular jaunts is to take a steamer from Glenridding to Howtown, where you disembark, and then make the return trip on foot to take in all the landscape has to offer.
