Newby Bridge, in the Lake District, is a small village at the southern end of Lake Windermere. Named for its five-arched stone bridge built across the river in 1651, this village is a lovely holiday destination in the Lake District.
Newby Bridge & the hamlets or Finsthwaite and High Stott Park, are convenient bases to explore the Furness peninsula and southern Lakeland areas. Fell Foot park is just north east of the town, as is the small village of Lakeside on the opposite side of the River Leven as it joins Lake Windermere. Here you will find the wonderful Lakes Aquarium filled with some amazing marine life.
You can even get the vintage steam train of Lakeside railway from Newby Bridge Halt to Lakeside Pier. From Lakeside Pier you can also access the Lake Windermere Cruises or you can explore the Lake at your own leisure and rent a boat for yourself!
If adventure is more up your street, head south towards Backbarrow and visit Lake District White Water Rafting for an adrenaline filled day out.
