No matter where you start your journey, be it Bowness, Ambleside or Lakeside the spectacular voyage gives the traveller magnificent views of mountain scenery, secluded bays and the many wooded islands.

Add to this the opportunity to break your journey and you have the makings of a perfect day out.

Bowness is the ‘heart’ of the Lake District, a holiday town with every sort of shop you can imagine with cafes and restaurants, just five minutes walk from the pier is The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction.

Ambleside is set amongst breathtaking majestic mountains and gentle rolling fells, this distinctive and very attractive Lakeland village is always a popular point to leave the vessel before returning on a later boat. The village of Ambleside is about 1 mile away from our piers.

Lakeside at the most southern end of the lake is the home of the award-winning freshwater Lakes Aquarium and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway. Over 30 fascinating displays featuring the UK’s largest collection of freshwater fish as well as mischievous otters and diving ducks. The railway is on the opposite side to our jetty and connects with our large steamers and takes you by the river scenery of the beautiful Leven Valley.
