Windermere Lake Cruises (Cumbria) Reviews
Description:Enjoy taking in England's largest lake located in the Lake District of Cumbria.
Newest Review: ... Cruise which take you to the east side of the lake towards Ambleside. I did the Red Cruise, this one has the most dramatic views. The biggest mountains and rugged scenery. I would recommend getting off in Ambleside and take a wonder in to town maybe a walk to the waterfalls, then take one of the last boats back when the sun is starting to go down behind the mountains. You get some amazing ... more

There are 3 cruise lines to choose from. The Yellow which does the South Lakelands taking in a lot of the beautiful homes and low lying land around Windermere. The Blue which is the main tourist option and does the central lake loop and the Red Cruise which take you to the east side of the lake towards Ambleside. I did the Red Cruise, this one has the most dramatic views. The biggest mountains and rugged scenery. I would recommend getting off in Ambleside and take a wonder in to town maybe a walk to the waterfalls, then take one of the last boats back when the sun is starting to go down behind the mountains. You get some amazing photos the views then are even ... Read the complete review

On Sunday we decided to take a drive to the Lake District. Living in West Yorkshire we knew we could do the drive in around an hour and a half and have some good quality family time together before the manic few days ahead of us this weekend. Nothing pleases me more than seeing the children running around outdoors, filling their lungs full of fresh air and all being together. We had no plans set in stone for when we got to Lake Windermere but we naturally made our way to the Lake side in Bowness upon our arrival. We have been a few times over the years but have never had the time or it hasn't quite suited our plans to make a trip on the cruises that run regularly across . Read the complete review

You know what it's like, kids off school for the very long 6 weeks summer holidays, under your feet, complaining that they've nothing to do, moaning that they're bored. So you rack your brain to try and find something to do, especially on those very rare sunny days that do happen sometimes in England, (yes they do, sometimes). That's exactly what I've had to do over the passed few weeks to stop my kids from arguing with each other. I've taken them to many places, shown htem things that they enjoyed, and made them suffer sometimes by taking them places that I knew they'd hate. So when I mentioned to them about a trip to the Lakes they jumped at the chance ... Read the complete review

We recently visited the Lake District on holiday and were camped around half hour from Windermere. Based upon research on the internet before we left we knew that the Lake Cruises would be a service we would be using. The Lake Cruises leave at 3 points on Windermere, Lakeside, Bowness and Ambleside. The ticket for your journey on the steamer alone can appear to be rather expensive. However the Cruise can be combined with the Lakeside freshwater Aquarium, the Steam Railway, and other attractions making it far better value for money. Prices range from around £6 - £10 return depending where abouts you set off from and wish to go. Prices for all day ... Read the complete review
