Wedding Reception Venue

Steam Yacht Gondola

Steam Yacht Gondola


Float along Coniston Water aboard Steam Yacht Gondola - a restored Victorian steam-powered boat with opulent saloons and open-air decks. The spectacular scenery of Coniston’s fells and village and the serene ambience of Gondola make this a special place to celebrate your wedding with your closest friends and family.

Gondola’s luxurious feel recreates the atmosphere of a bygone era. The interior of the boat is divided into two saloons reflecting Victorian trains from the Furness Railway: a first class saloon with luxuriously upholstered seating and a ‘third’ class saloon with a rich mahogany ceiling and leather upholstery.

Seating capacity:
Gondola has inside seating capacity for 50 and a total carrying capacity of 86 passengers. When catering is provided, the maximum number of passengers recommended is 50. The central seating in the saloons can be turned into tables for catering - the seating is fixed ‘bench’ seating around the perimeter of the saloons. We recommend a cruise of 1.5 to 2 hrs. The earliest charter time is from 4.45pm.
