Windermere Lake Cruises

Windermere Lake Cruises



The perfect way to travel around the Lake District is on the water. Take a cruise on England’s largest lake with Windermere Lake Cruises, at the heart of the English Lake District World Heritage Site. Take a stroll on the deck of a historic vessel and enjoy as the glorious Lakeland mountains meander gently by. Alight at Lakeside for a ride on a steam locomotive on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway.

Enjoy an ice cream or a spot of lunch in Ambleside or browse the numerous independent shops in Bowness. Boats operate all year round and provide something for everybody with cruises ranging from 45 minutes to over 3 hours.
