Fun & Interesting Facts

One of the most famous poems ever written, Daffodils by William Wordsworth, was inspired by a sunny spring walk the poet enjoyed with his sister along the banks of Ullswater.

Keep an eye out for the beautiful Ullswater, which at 7.5 miles long is the second largest lake in England.

Pooley Bridge is at the northern end, taking its name from the 16th century bridge that was built over the River Eamont.

You may also see Howtown from the basket of your Lake District hot air balloon – a regular stop for the Ullswater Steamers.
