By bus

Using a bus when you visit the Lake District gives you the opportunity to see so much more.  Take the top deck of an open top bus or brave one of our passes on a small rambler service. Our interactive map plots the bus routes in the county showing their service number, the route they will take and what you can see along the way, so why not give it a go.

Stagecoach's Lakes Connection services affected by flooding -

Most services across Cumbria and North Lancashire are back to normal following Storm Desmond. There will be long term disruption to some services due to road damage.

There is an emergency timetable in place for Service 555 as a result of the road closure at Thirlmere.

Service 508 will continue to run from Penrith to Glenridding and Patterdale on the same timetable but due to the missing bridge at Pooley Bridge will run via Rheged and Dalemain rather than Pooley Bridge.

Stagecoach have also introduced a Penrith to Pooley Bridge shuttle service. For revised timetables visit
