Ambleside and the surrounding area has been the creative inspiration for many great artists, poets and musicians over the centuries: Beatrix Potter, William Wordsworth, Thomas De Quincy, Samuel Coleridge, John Ruskin, Kurt Shwitters, Russell Mills and Steve Coogan.
Derek Hook has been running music concerts in Ambleside for many years and it was on his piano that John Taylor composed his famous suite “Ambleside Days”.
