Windermere and Bowness is a town in South Lakeland, Cumbria, England.
Due its position on the banks of Windermere the town has become a tourist
honeypot. Although their mutual growth has caused them to become one large
settlement, the town is distinct from the town of Windermere as the two still
have distinguishable town centres. In 2012, Bowness was one of the official
stop off points for the Olympic torch before it made its way to the Olympic
Games opening ceremony
