From the entry point on the East side of Windermere you will see the famous Langdale Pikes, with Scafell Pike behind Bow

Fell and Crinkle Crags. Windermere is Britain’s most popular open water swimming destination, hosing the Great North Swim

boating lake and while there will be no boats on race day, if you are intending to practise the swim prior to the event then

take extra caution while crossing the ferry lanes that run from Bowness to Ambleside.
