We had a lovely cruise around Lake Windermere with excellent commentary. Definitely a trip to go on in this lovely part of our beautiful country.

Trip itself was amazing, better then going with bus! Unfortunately we started off with very rude lady selling tickets and that just put us off! Shame, in such a touristic place you would expect better customer service!

A nice cruise on the lake however we managed to have good weather. We picked another boat to Fell Foot park and walked there too. The park is also suitable for pic nics.
