Details

Float back to Victorian times as you indulge in a luxurious cruise on captivating Coniston water in this exquisite steam-powered craft.

Painstakingly rebuilt from the original Victorian ‘Gondola’, passengers can enjoy the silent gentle gliding motion combining their cruise with a visit to Brantwood House or disembarking at Monk Coniston jetty for a circular walk to Tarn Hows.

Explorer cruises on certain days take in the full length of Coniston Water with lively commentary by the crew about Coniston’s famous connections.

Cruises commence from Coniston Pier from 11am, daily from April until the end of October.

Groups fares available for 15 or more when booked in advance.
