Windermere is at the end of a branch line from Oxenholme on the main West Coast route from London to Scotland. Trains run every hour or so.
The train station is above the town, a few minutes walk from the centre. The station forecourt has bus stops with frequent service into the town and to
Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside, and a taxi rank.
There is one coach per day to and from London. Local bus services run to and from Kendal, Lancaster and Keswick as well as to destinations throughout the Lake District.
