Windermere Lake Cruises

Windermere Lake Cruises



Make your special day even more memorable by holding a private reception on board a Windermere Lake Cruise. You and your guests will have an experience to remember whilst enjoying the beautiful scenery of England's largest lake.

Your guests can be greeted with a welcome drink before enjoying the spectacular moving vista of Cumbrian fells and mountains, accompanied by fine food, wine and entertainment. Our uniformed boat crew will be on hand to ensure that every detail goes to plan and provide you with the best of Lakeland hospitality.

Our fleet includes boats to suit every size of wedding party ranging from traditional wooden launches (up to 25 people) to our flagship 'steamers' that can accommodate up to 200 guests. All of our boats can be decorated to your taste and we have a range of options available to make your cruise even more special.

Start your cruise from our piers at Bowness, Ambleside (Waterhead) or Lakeside or let us collect you from one of the many private hotel piers that are located around Windermere.

Contact our events booking team on 015394 43360 to discuss your wedding requirements or arrange an appointment. We welcome the opportunity to show you our boats and have a look around before your special day.
