photograph of Ferry from Sawrey across WindermereBy far the quickest way to get from the west side of Windermere (near Hawkshead) to the east side (Ambleside and Bowness) is by ferry. It's the queueing to get on the ferry that takes the time!

This ferry takes cars and pedestrians and is extremely popular so do be prepared for very long queues. Once on the ferry, you are pulled across by thick, wire cables. Those of us whose cars have very low chassis need to be warned: it is very easy to scrape the underside of your vehicle on the approach to the ferry and the disembarkation. The whole journey takes about 15 minutes, but the queues can take hours. Don't say I didn't warn you.
