Ullswater Steamers

Ullswater ‘Steamers’ is an award winning environmentally accredited Lake District attraction celebrating over 150 years of operating cruises on England’s most beautiful lake. Operating one of the largest heritage vessel fleets in the world, offering visitors an experience they will never forget all year round.

Cruises connect to some of the most famous and iconic walking routes in the National Park, with views of Wordsworth's Daffodils on the west shore in Spring. Excellent facilities onboard the five vessels in regular service include open deck and covered upper deck seating areas in addition to covered downstairs saloons, licensed bars and toilets.

Ullswater runs a serpentine course for eight miles through expansive vistas of Lakeland’s highest mountains.  Helvellyn at 3,117ft (950m) crowns Ullswater, at the South-western end of the valley, standing on a mighty plateau approximately 9 miles (14.5km) in length and 4.5 miles (7km) wide. The ‘Steamers’ operate an all year service with varying timetable connections between Glenridding, Howtown, Pooley Bridge Piers and between Glenridding and National Trust Aira Force Pier. Cruise times vary from 20 – 120 minutes.
