How to get to GT

Travel Information


Leave the M6 at junction 36 (signposted Barrow, Kendal and the South Lakes) and follow the signs for the A590 (signposted to Barrow) to Newby Bridge (15 miles). As you approach Newby Bridge turn right at the roundabout along the A592 to Windermere and Bowness. Proceed along the road for about 3.5 miles then a fork right along a minor signposted Great Tower Scout Camp (its just after a corner to take care). Then the main entrance to the site is about 1/2 a mile up the road on the left hand side. Please park in the lower car park and proceed to the booking in area in camp centre.

Be warned there is limited parking so we would appreciate it if you shared transport to site to elevate the problem.

Public Transport

Railway and long distance bus services run to and from Windermere for the camp. The Gathering will be operating a shuttle bus service to and from Windermere Train Station. Please let Admin know your arrival and departure details prior to the event if you would like to take us up on this service.


For those that are coming from further away the nearest major airports with good links to the lakes are Manchester Airport or Liverpool John Lennon Airport. Or there are various Ferry Terminals with good transport links to the Lake District Heysham or Liverpool.
