| |Ullswater Steamers
Ullswater Steamers have enjoyed over 150 years of sailing on one of England's most beautiful lakes. Referred to as the 'Dark Lake' in Arthurian legend, you can set sail on Ullswater on a voyage of discovery. For centuries this landscape has influenced famous poets and writers such as William Wordsworth. It is a valley with a rich biodiversity of wildlife whose ancient woodlands and fells provide breeding habitats for some of our rare species such as red deer, red squirrels and goosanders. The steamers create the perfect opportunity to combine a cruise with some of the most famous and spectacular countryside in the Lake District.

The Windermere Ferry service is provided by the Highways Department of Cumbria County Council. The ferry runs between Ferry Nab near Bowness and Ferry House, Far Sawrey, on the other side of the lake. Unlike any other ferry in the Lake District, the Windermere Ferry can take cars as well as foot passengers. It runs all year except for Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
