Lunch & Cruise for groups

For a great afternoon out on the Lake

Offering anything from a one course pub style lunch to a classic English afternoon tea - give your group a day out to remember.

Enjoy a sail on board one of our steamers or launches before or after enjoying lunch in one of the local hotels we work with. Why not enjoy your tea and coffee whilst sailing through the beautiful vistas of Windermere?

We will book everything for you, just let us know where you would like to eat and what time you would like to sail. We can tailor the lunch cruise to your needs, If you would like to sail from any of the piers or if you would just prefer the 45 minute circular islands cruise and then combine with one of the leading hotels and restaurants we work with:

  • Cruise and lunch is also available during the Christmas festive season (excluding Christmas Day) or Mothering Sunday. Prices available on request.

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.

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).
