Beautiful bridge with a car park just yards away. However, from that you can then walk or drive up to Surprise View which I can not talk more highly of! It'll give you the most incredible panoramic views of Derwentwater

This is a famous viewpoint with exceptional views of the Skiddaw range and Derwentwater. The road to it is very narrow and great fun when you meet other cars!!!

I took a couple of reluctant young teenagers here on the premise that it would be good to get some photos of Ashlyn on Ashness Bridge. We took the launch from Keswick and walked up from Ashness Jetty. I thought I'd overhyped it and they...More

Crossing a shallow Rocky stream and surrounded by mountains, Ashness bridge is a fabulous place in which to encounter everything that is best about England's Lake District. And it is accessible by car.

Go early in the morning to stand the best chance of photographing the bridge in good light. The surprise view is just up the road and is also good at dawn.
