The Green Cruise is a perfect choice for families, with some great family attractions just minutes from our piers:
Our pier is situated within the grounds of this scenic lakeside park and all our passengers get free entry. The visitor centre, indoor attractions and cafe are a few minutes walk through the grounds.
Brockhole is open all year and has great outdoor activities such as lake-shore walks, adventure playgrounds, orienteering, mini golf and archery as well as the exciting Treetop Trek ropes course and Treetop Nets. With a huge range of special events throughout the year, it's a place to explore as part of your Green Cruise.
Situated on the quiet western shore of Windermere, this Victorian neo-gothic castle and scenic grounds are managed by The National Trust. Not your typical castle, the building has a fascinating history plus there's a plant-based cafe & coffee shop on site.
Boat visitors can explore the castle and lake-shore grounds for free, follow guided trails and discover hidden shingle beaches, lawns and some of the finest views over Windermere.
