Established close to and deriving its name from the greatest lake in England, the town of Windermere doesn't in fact touch the edge of the lake, as it is roughly one kilometre away, although the neighbouring Bowness-on-Windermere certainly does.

The name "Windermere" seems to be a mix of Old Swedish and Old English, the very first reported reference to it from 1396 as "Wynandermer", the very first part of the name is assumed to refer to a personal name Vinandr (from Old Swedish), with the second element "mere", that means a pool or lake (from Old English). Though the village didn't use this name until much later.

Windermere - Main RoadThe town as it is today only began since the arriving of the railway in in eighteen forty seven, the original settlement was called Birthwaite and it revised its name to "Windermere" as soon as the railway company named the train station after the famous lake instead of the village. And so actually the Kendal and Windermere Railway were responsible for naming the town!

The town at present has virtually merged with nearby Bowness, despite the fact that they continue to be 2 different towns having their own centers. The vicinity is massive for tourism and there are a mixture of points of interest and museums, with the famous lake staying key attraction. It has got a population of approximately 8,200 and it's located in the Cumbrian South Lakeland District.
