Windermere Jetty Museum of Boats, Steam & Stories will celebrate its first anniversary on 23 March 2020 with an exhibition focusing on Swallows and Amazons author Arthur Ransome.

The museum was opened in March 2019 by Prince Charles, following a £20m investment, and reported 45,000 visitors through its doors in the first eight months. 

Its awards include the NHS-UK Martyn Heighton Award for Excellence in Maritime Conservation, and the Design of the Year at the Architect's Journal Architecture Awards.
