A great attraction on a wet day is the fascinating Lakeland Motor Museum. It is situated just off the A590 near Backbarrow very close to the southern tip of Lake Windermere.
The museum has a unique road transport collection of some 30,000 exhibits assembled over a period of almost 50 years.
One of the main attractions is a tribute to father and son, Sir Malcolm and Donald Campbell who between them captured 21 world land and water speed records in the Bluebird series of cars and boats. Donald Campbell was tragically killed on nearby Coniston Water in January 1967, whilst attempting to break his own water speed record.
Highlights include full-size detailed replicas of the 1935 Bluebird car, the 1939 boat, Bluebird K4, and the famous 1967 jet hydroplane, Bluebird K7.
