Travelling by coach
Visiting us is easy by coach, and we've been welcoming coaches to our piers since we re-opened from lock-down on 4 July 2020.
All coach drivers with cruise passengers are welcome to use our award-winning* Bowness coach park free of charge and will receive a warm welcome from our dedicated coach park staff. The coach park is a few yards from our pier at postcode LA23 3HJ and hosts ticket offices, café and gift shop.
⚠ To ensure that we are operating in a Covid-19 secure manner, we ask that all coaches are pre-booked:
- All cruise tickets must be pre-booked in advance and your coach parking can be done at the same time. Call us on 015394 43360 to book.
- It would help us if you could tell us the break-down of your passenger household/bubbles within your coach, so we can book them on our cruises within our socially-distanced seating
If you’re dropping off customers at Lakeside, Ambleside (Waterhead) and planning to pick them up from Bowness then make sure you pre-book your space at Bowness Coach park by calling 015394 43360.
