There are still 15 weeks to go before Christmas, but tickets for two of Windermere Lake Cruises’ ‘Santa Cruise’ sailings have sold out already.

 Father Christmas will be making an appearance on no fewer than eight Windermere Lake Cruises services this December, with tickets selling at a record rate.

 Despite it only being the start of the autumn, the attraction’s team expects the annual event to completely sell-out before the end of October.

 Father Christmas will welcome children to eight ‘Santa Cruise’ sailings, onboard a heated modern launch over two consecutive weekends. The boat will leave Bowness Pier for a 90-minute cruise twice a day on December 8th, 9th, 15th and 16th; departing at 11.30am and 2pm.

This isn’t just a flying visit from the man himself either; He’ll be onboard throughout the entire cruise to join in with the fun and deliver a wrapped present to each child personally. There will also be sherry and mince pies for the children’s parents or guardians.

 Children under the age of three years old can join the cruise for just £5.85, while for adults and the over-threes, tickets are £11.70. To book a place, call 015394 43360.
