Welcome to the Ullswater 'Steamers'
Ullswater runs a serpentine course for eight miles through expansive vistas of Lakeland’s highest mountains.

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.
