Glenridding is a village at the southern end of Ullswater, in the English Lake District. Step out of Glenridding with an excursion to Buttermere in Buttermere--about 52 minutes away. There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Derwentwater, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Keswick Brewing Company, examine the collection at J.B.Banks and Son Ltd, and don't miss a visit to Castlerigg Stone Circle.

To see where to stay, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Glenridding road trip app .

London to Glenridding is an approximately 5.5-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of car and flight.
