Lake cruises Derwentwater and Park & Sail
25th Aug, 2021

Keswick Launches offers lake cruises on Derwentwater, a very special way of discovering the Northern Lake District. Experience the beauty of Derwentwater with breathtaking views of Skiddaw, England’s fourth highest mountain, Catbells, and the ‘Jaws of Borrowdale’.

You can take the 50 minute round boat trip or disembark at one of the eight jetties en-route and take a lakeland walk via well-marked paths to famous landmarks such as Ashness Bridge, Lodore Falls, Grange in Borrowdale, Brandelhow and Lingholm, holiday home of Beatrix Potter.

Park and Sail

Drivers can pay £4 per day to park in Keswick Rugby Club’s 200 car parking spaces and receive a voucher giving a 15% discount off a launch service the same day for a maximum of 4 of their passengers.

The Launch Company are now operating a shuttle service to Hawse End at the foot of Cat Bells, in addition to its other services. Users will be able to access the launches by the short walk through Crow Park along the northern shore of Derwent Water.
