The New Year Countdown
As the New Year approaches on the 31st December 2023, there is an awful lot going on in and around Bowness on Windermere, so when you have finished your meal you won’t be short of places to go.
Most of the pubs around the area will be free and un-ticketed, inevitably they will be very busy, but this makes for a genuinely fantastic atmosphere throughout the evening.
The vast majority of people will gather on the Glebe ahead of the midnight countdown, with a number of hotels near the shore having their own firework displays. It has become a bit of a tradition for hordes of people to gather by the jetty on the lake’s shore, as it has an absolutely fantastic vantage point. Be sure to head down early enough to get yourself the perfect spot though, as you can imagine the Glebe is bustling as the countdown approaches!
