Winter closures in January 2020
January is one of the quietest months on and around Lake Windermere. We sail every day, but customers should be aware of the following restrictions:
This cruise is operated by one of our traditional wooden launches. We're sorry but there is no wheelchair access to this vessel.Our most wheelchair-friendly vessels are ‘steamers’ (marked in black on some of our timetables) that can be accessed by a ramp from the pier to the main cabin which is under cover and is on the same level. These operate on our most popular routes - red cruise and yellow cruise. Our other vessels have limited access for wheelchairs but sometimes can be accommodated on board. Please call us to discuss your access requirements.
If a disabled adult in your group needs a carer, then the carer travels free. For more information about this scheme and to see all the terms and conditions, please read our company policy for disabled passengers.
Toilets are available on all our ‘steamers’ and launches (check for disabled access) but not our traditional launches. Many of our vessels have licensed bars and/or tea bars. So whilst enjoying the marvellous panoramic views, why not treat yourself to a tipple of your choice.
Our services are provided in accordance with our Conditions of Carriage which can be found on our homepage under ‘About Us’.
For the safety and comfort of all passengers and crew, Windermere Lake Cruises Ltd operates a no smoking policy on-board its vessels, piers and shore premises. This includes electronic cigarettes.
Why not upgrade this cruise and get unlimited travel on our vessels for 24 hours with our Freedom of the Lake ticket?
