The sound of cool jazz will make a triumphant return to warm South Lakeland evenings next month, with the first Summer Evening Buffet Cruise of the year by Windermere Lake Cruises.

Terrific sunsets from on board the steamers

The popular Buffet Cruise begins again on Saturday, July 2 and will run every Saturday evening through July and August.

The musical backdrop is once again provided by resident band ‘Trickle Charge’ who’ll play a selection of Latin rhythms, mainstream jazz and tasteful pop as you cruise the entire length of Windermere.


This year sees a new buffet on board with vegetarians, vegan & all dietary requrements accomodated.

Along with spectacular evening views this popular two-and-a-half-hour cruise includes a quality two-course cold buffet (with a new menu for 2022), a fully licensed bar and a dance floor later in the cruise.

It’s a great way to spend a summer evening and the cruises are always extremely popular – so make sure you book your place early.

Musicians on board in our resident band

Setting sail at 7pm, each Saturday, from July 2 to August 27, the Buffet Cruise will cover the entire length of the lake, treating passengers onboard the ‘steamers’ MVs Teal and Swan to the perfect way to enjoy the summer holiday season.

All cruises depart from Bowness Pier 1.


Tickets must be booked in advance and can be purchased online here or by calling 015394 43360. All prices include the full lake cruise, live band, two-course buffet and tea & coffee.

Alcoholic drinks are also available for purchase from the fully licenced bar, while well-behaved dogs with an appreciation for good rhythms are also welcome onboard.
