Details

Ullswater Steamers are the perfect choice to host your celebration or corporate function on "Englands most beautiful lake".
Welcome your guests aboard with a glass of champagne. This dramatic landscape has inspired writers and artists for centuries, from the gentle rolling hills of the northern reach to the grandeur of the southern reach where the foothills of Helvellyn rise from the lake shore.
Why not combine your cruise with one of the many famous walks in our "walks for all" guides or many of the other attractions in the area to make your celebration or hospitality event complete. Contact us for a charter pack and show around.
