Things to do in Ambleside

If you’re someone who likes to take part in lots of fun activities whilst you’re away, you’re going to love the Lake District; there are lots of things to do, ranging from exhilarating hikes and adventurous boat trips across the lakes to brilliant restaurants and traditional pubs that’ll have you feeling right at home from the moment you step through their doors. If you’re struggling to plan the ideal break to the lakes, don’t worry – you can find our best things to do in Ambleside just below, so be sure to check those out to ensure that you’re not missing out on the best attractions and experiences in the region!

Visit the Bridge House

One of the most popular attractions for tourists in the Lake District is the Bridge House, which sits in an eye-catching location above Stock Beck, just off of Rydal Road. The building has become a landmark since its construction due to its unique structure and strange location, sitting suspended above the water on a purpose-built bridge. The Bridge House dates all the way back to the 17th century and has had a variety of different inhabitants over the years; the building was originally an orchard storehouse, but since then has seen its purpose change from a chair maker’s workshop, a cobbler’s shop, a tearoom, and even a family home that once housed 8 people! Once you visit the Bridge House and see just how small the interior is, you’re sure to be left wondering how on Earth  8 people managed to fit into the building at one time!

Due to the special place that the Bridge House has in Lake District folklore, the building is now owned by the National Trust after it was bought and donated by a group of local Ambleside residents.

Take a steamer boat trip on Windermere

When you’re in the Lake District, there’s one thing that you simply have to experience; a trip out onto one of the lakes! Luckily, it’s really easy to find an operator offering trips across the water, with boats ranging from speedy smaller boats to the iconic steamers with their large chimney and traditional appearance. With a boat cruise across the water, you’re able to see the lakes from a completely unseen perspective that’s unlike anything you can find on solid ground. If you’re staying in Ambleside, Windermere is your closest lake – this is great as it’s the largest lake and has the most regular attraction schedule in the district. Whilst sailing across the water, you’ll be able to catch views of the surrounding fells, Belle Isle, and the lakeside house surrounding the lake, without even having to get up out of your seat! To find the schedule for launches on Windermere, you can head to Ambleside Pier in Waterhead – in the summer, this timetable is a little busier to handle the increased demand.

Scale the peaks at Loughrigg Fell

Provided the weather is on your side, walks in the Lake District can transport you to a completely new world, filled with fresh air, natural scenery, and truly stunning views. One of Ambleside’s most popular walks is the hiking trail leading to the peak of Loughrigg Fell, which is the highest fell in Ambleside, standing at 335 metres. Unlike many of the other towns in the Lakes, Ambleside is not surrounded by a high number of peaks – the town sits in a depression known as Red Bank, which gives Loughrigg Fell a much more dominating appearance in this area of the skyline. With no other peaks hindering the views around Ambleside and Windermere, Loughrigg Fell offers wonderful panoramic views of the UK’s largest lake – it’s ideal for a photo opportunity if you’ve got the right skills!
