Escape with the gentle sounds and peaceful calm of the lake, see the rugged contours of nearby fells in new ways and embrace the spirit of adventure.

Our knowledgeable skippers will take you back in time with stories of the fascinating collection and the surrounding landscape that inspired the museum.

Enjoy a 30-minute or 75-minute intimate cruise on one of the museum’s fully restored heritage boats and hear our skippers share stories of the museum’s wonderful collection and our fascinating local heritage.

For the ultimate experience, enjoy a delicious breakfast in the cafe, overlooking the peaceful calm of lake before the first cruise of the day.
