Fell Foot Park

Visit this popular National Trust Park with picnic area

Combine your visit to Lakeside Pier (Aquarium, Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway & shuttle bus to Lakeland Motor Museum) with Fell Foot Park, a popular National Trust lakeside park with a picnic area and children’s adventure playground.

  • Fell Foot now holds a Changing Places facility on-site; a fully accessible changing room with a height-adjustable bench and hoist for those with complex care needs.
  • The Boathouse café serves a range of hot and cold meals, snacks and drinks, picnics are very welcome in the park. BBQs are not allowed due to potential damage they may cause to the parkland.

This summer ferry service allows your group easy access to both sides of the lake and only takes 5 minutes.

Coach Drivers

For great incentives and useful information for tour operators and drivers call 015394 43360. Windermere Lake Cruises has ample parking for coaches at both Lakeside and Bowness piers and there is space for dropping off at Ambleside (Waterhead) Pier. View our interactive map with information about parking, piers and their location around the lake.

On-Board Facilities

Toilets are available on all of our ‘Steamers’ and modern launches (check for disabled access). 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, or how about a warming soup to prepare you for your journey home?

Facilities for Wheelchair Users

Wheelchair users are strongly advised to call and confirm which vessel is operating which service. Our ‘Steamers’ are suitable for wheelchair users but onboard toilet facilities can only be reached by means of stairs. However there are adapted toilets at Lakeside, Bowness and Ambleside, and ‘Radar’ facilities close to Ambleside and Bowness Piers. The Main saloons are wheelchair accessible on the Teal and the Swan but not on the Tern (although there is ample covered accommodation).
