Windermere is a popular tourist centre, surrounded by easily reached vantage points which give glorious views of the countryside and the lake Windermere. Town combined with the older Bowness on the largest English lake, which is narrow and beautiful, with wooded banks, and splendid views of the fells. Orrest Head, a 784ft hill north of the town, provides one of the most spectacular panoramas. Another easy climb is to the top of Biskey How, a 300ft hill just east of the Windermere suburb of Bowness, which has quaint narrow streets and the 15th century St Martin's Church which has some good stained glass, and beautiful views across the lake. The church also contains a wooden equestrian statue of St Martin, in the church of which he is the patron saint, it is of a very rare kind and was carved locally in the early 17th century. Bowness is the headquarters of the Royal Windermere Yacht club. The A592 which goes along the east side of the lake cuts well inland in many places, but there are still some excellent viewpoints. Among the best of these is the 1054-ft peak of Gummer's How, 6 miles south of Windermere, which can be reached by taking the side road at Fell Foot. There is a Climb of about half a mile to reach the top. There are also splendid views from the terraces of Brockhole, the Lake District National Park Visitor Centre, which stands in 30 acres of lakeside grounds 2 miles north west of Windermere.
