Eamont Way connects the world to Ullswater

The Eamont Way is a walking route from Penrith Railway Station to Pooley Bridge Steamer Pier, offering an active travel alternative to the car, bus, or taxi for these 5.5 miles.

The route closely follows the course of the river Eamont, crossing it twice. It starts with a series of signed pedestrian crossings from the railway station to the edge of the town, then follows a series of signed footpaths, bridleways and ‘permitted paths’ to exit at ‘The Sun Inn’ in Pooley Bridge. From there it is less than ½ a mile to the pier for the Ullswater Steamers where onward lake travel to Howtown and Glenridding is on offer: and onward from Glenridding to Aira Force.
