The railway station in Windermere, which Bowness has now grown into, offers train and bus connections to several areas, including Manchester, Manchester Airport, and the West Coast Main Line.  The railway station itself is only a fifteen minute walk from the lake.  What a beautiful walk that is too.
You can even take a ride on one of those cool looking double-decker buses!  The Ferry of Windermere also carries cars across and connects with Far Sawrey which is on the opposite side of the lake.
The town church St. Martin was built in 1483, but the foundation is thought to be a bit older, in fact the rectory that use to stand was said to have built in 1415.
