Windermere Lake Cruises ‘Bike Boat’ to return daily for the summer holidays

The popular ‘Bike Boat’ scheme offered by Windermere Lake Cruises will return to operating a daily service from 20 July 2019, running eight crossings each-way throughout the summer school holiday period.

Crossing between Brockhole – The Lake District Visitor Centre on the eastern side of Windermere and Bark Barn jetty on the traffic-free western shore of the lake – accessed by the Wray Castle/Ferry House bridleway, the Bike Boat will operate seven days a week until September 1.

Foot passengers are also welcome to use the Bike Boat service, but priority will be given to cyclists for each crossing.

For foot passengers wishing to cross from the western shore of Windermere to Brockhole, a passenger only service also operates from Wray Castle.

Single and return tickets are available. Details are online at

Holders of a Windermere Lake Cruises’ Local Residents Discount card being offered a 20% discount on the regular ticket prices.

Bikes are also welcome on other boats for an extra £1, although foot passengers take priority on those services.
