Residents in Cumbria and North Lancashire can enjoy two of Cumbria’s top attractions for half the usual price thanks to a special local’s discount which starts this month.

The 50 per cent discount is for holders of Local Residents’ Discount Cards which are free to anyone living in CA or LA postcode areas.

The discount is valid for all Windermere Lake Cruises’ scheduled sailings from the start of this month (October) until April 30 next year. And now is a great time to enjoy the stunning autumnal Lakeland landscapes.

The same half price discount also applies to entry to the popular Lakeland Motor Museum at Backbarrow with its amazing collection of vintage and classic vehicles.

Jennifer Cormack, Sales & Marketing Director at Windermere Lake Cruises, says: “We know the cost-of-living crisis is affecting everyone so we hope people will make the most of the Local Residents’ Discount Cards.

“They are a great way to rediscover all that the wonderful Lake District has to offer and it costs nothing at all to sign up for one.”

Holders of the cards continue to qualify for a 20% discount from May 1st next year right up to the beginning of October 2024.
