Take a journey around England’s largest lake in the beautiful Lake District with Windermere Lake Cruises. Enjoy an educational trip such as the Red Cruise with on board commentary, or take the family on the Green Cruise in a more traditional wooden boat to arrive at Wray Castle or the Lake District Visiting Centre.
For a short jump across the lake make use of the Fell Foot Ferry to enter the local National Park, or climb aboard the shuttle ferry to gain access to more beautiful grounds and views at Hill Top.
If you’re a keen traveler of the waters rent a luxury motor boat, or travel in style with a private hire vessel for you and your guests. Take your partner for a romantic journey across the lake in one of the rowing boats, or once back on land explore the local areas on foot.
There are several routes and boat options available, with the larger vessels at Windermere Lake Cruises operating all year. The smaller and more specialist trips such as cross lake shuttles, foot ferry and bike trips are only operational during summer months and are best to check in advance.
Prices vary and range from £3.20 for adults and £1.60 for children, up to £11 adults/£6.60 children. Family tickets are also available, along with “Freedom of the Lake” passes at £19.50 adults and £9.75 children for 24hr unlimited travel.
Make the day even more special with various packages on private hire, group bookings, or combining your cruise with other local attractions and local events.
