Lake Cruises and operating in the ‘new normal’

We have 4 main Lake Cruise experiences in the Lakes; Windermere Lake Cruises, Ullswater Steamers, Keswick Launch & Coniston Launch.

As we emerge from lockdown, they are working hard to welcome you on board, and here’s how things are operating right now in order to maintain social distancing and keep you safe.

Windermere Lake Cruises

Cruises

Round Lake cruises or pier to pier services, between Lakeside, Bowness and Ambleside.

Customers can now book from one pier to another, simply enjoy a return round trip journey or disembark the vessel and return on a later sailing .

All journeys will still need to book in advance, online (using the link below) and both the departure time and location and return time and location will need to be booked.

As seats are still timed and ticketed guests must ensure that they sail on the journey that they have booked.

✔️ Social distancing ✔️ ticketed seating ✔️ enhanced cleaning ✔️ online booking only ✔️ fewer trips so that boats can be cleaned after every trip ✔️ fewer passengers to observe social distancing = more room to enjoy the views.

Please observe social distancing, wear your face mask and be kind to others
