Lakeside Pier by Barbara BallardJust as its name suggests, the village of Lakeside is at waters edge--in this case, Windermeres southern shore. Its a popular and busy spot in the summer and a great place to have a snack and enjoy the views across the water. You can catch a cruise boat from Waterhead or Bowness to Lakeside or hop aboard here to see the lake.

Lakeside saddle tank locomotive by Dr Neil CliftonRide the Lakeside and Haverthwaite railway for a 3½-mile journey that takes you to Newby Bridge and then finishes in Haverthwaite. This was once part of the Ulverston and Barrow Furness rail line.

Lakeside by Simon BarnesAt Lakesides pier is the Aquarium of the Lakes, with 30 displays set up to follow a river from its felltop beginning to its end in Morecambe Bay. Lake District murals, sound effects, live fish, and an AV show enhance the experience.

Just north of Lakeside is Stott Park bobbin mill, an interesting English Heritage property, and a bit of Lakeland history.
