Cruise England’s largest lake in the very heart of the Lake District. One of the most popular attractions in Cumbria, Windermere Lake Cruises gives you the opportunity to see the splendour of the lake and its surrounding setting from the vast lake itself.

Start your journey from Bowness, Ambleside, or Lakeside, and set off on a journey of bewitching beauty as you soak up the sites of mountain scenery, secluded bays and the scatter of thickly-wooded islands.

Combine one of Windermere Lake Cruises with a fun activity to complete your day out! Merge a cruise with a visit to the shops in Bowness or Ambleside, or team up with a trip to the Lakeland Motor Museum. Ride on a steam locomotive to Haverwaite for an ideal break in your day to have lunch or enjoy a picnic.

As well as cruises, Windermere Lake Cruises also offers self-drive and rowing boats. Put yourself at the helm of your lake trip! You have the freedom to venture wherever piques your interest.

Discover Lake Windermere at your pace on board a rowing boat or a motor boat – on which you will be given full instruction beforehand. However you see Lake Windermere, you are sure to never forget your visit!
