We're next to the large visitor car park in Glenridding, on the West shore of the lake.
Bus route 508 operated by Stagecoach, runs from Penrith so connections at the rail station to Pooley Bridge, Glenridding and Patterdale all year round, extending over Kirkstone Pass to Windermere and Bowness in summer. The bus stop is in the car park, just 100 yards from the information centre.
Ullswater Steamers run the scenic length of the lake from Pooley Bridge to Glenridding Pier (which is just 100m from the information centre) all year round, with drop-off points at How Town and Aira Force.
