At LAKE ULLSWATER, join a steam-boat for a cruise on this beautiful lake. Departing the pretty lakeside village of Pooley Bridge it steams for just over an hour to arrive at the former mining village of Glenridding.

Hidden beneath a grass roof is the RHEGED VISITOR CENTRE, a building of architectural merit. This unique heritage centre is home to shops, crafts, an art gallery, photography exhibitions and a 3D cinema.

 

LAKESIDE & HAVERTHWAITE RAILWAY discover the lovingly restored fleet of locomotives at the engine-shed at Haverthwaite station. The train departs Haverthwaite for its journey through the beautiful Leven Valley, a unique journey which travels to the tip of Lake Windermere to Lakeside Pier.

 

LAKE WINDERMERE CRUISE from Lakeside Pier we a cruise across Windermere, England’s largest lake. Enjoy some of the finest views along the way as we sail to BOWNESS, a bustling tourist town on the banks of the Lake where outdoor activities are in abundance. Attractions in the town include; The World of Beatrix Potter, St Martin’s parish church and behind you’ll find Lowside, a web of narrow streets which give an idea of how the village looked before the railway arrived.
