Why not sit back and take a cruise on the traditional Victorian steamers. You can sail to various destinations including Waterhead at Ambleside, or down to Lakeside and join the Lakeside to Haverthwaite Steam Railway to continue your steam powered journey.
Lakeside is home to The Aquarium of the Lakes, fun for all the family, or pick up the shuttle bus to the Lakeland Motor Museum for a trip back in time. For more family fun, The World of Beatrix Potter attraction can be found in Bowness. If you prefer more adrenaline-filled activity, why not try Go-Ape, a high wire treetop adventure and zip-wire course set in the forest at Grizedale.
