At Lakeside, two of the Lake District's premiere tourist attractions can be found in one little village just off the shores of Windermere. The Lakes Aquarium opened in 1997, giving visitors who don't fancy a dip in Lake Windermere itself the chance to get up close and personal with freshwater and saltwater fish and animals like the rainbow trout, river stingrays, piranhas, diving ducks, mudskippers and freshwater butterfly fish. The aquarium is the third-most visited paying tourist attraction in Cumbria and also features a Virtual Diving Bell, in which two-metre diameter semi-spherical CG graphics screens display images of life below the waterline. Also waiting to be discovered at the village of Lakeside is the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, which terminates there having run its heritage engines along the line from Newby Bridge. Visitors to the Lake District can catch steam trains along the L&HR to connect with steam-powered boats that take them on a further journey across Lake Windermere. The village of Lakeside itself has been part of Cumbria since its 1974 switch from being classed as a Lancashire village in the region of Furness. Lakeside cottages house a small community of villagers and also offer accommodation to the many visitors who arrive at the village all year round.
