Pooley Bridge




Also at this Venue


Pooley Bridge straddles the River Eamont at the head of Ullswater in the picturesque Eden Valley. The town's two wide main streets are lined with greystone houses and a number of teashops, all overlooking the lake. The town also boasts a beautiful 16th century bridge.
A popular way to explore the area is to take a boat from Pooley Bridge, leave the boat at Howtown, and then walk to Glenridding and catch the boat back to Pooley Bridge. This was one of Wordsworth's favourite walks and offers views of the lake and Helvellyn.
