Lake Bank walkers' cruise

A walk and a cruise

Combine an atmospheric journey down the length of Coniston Water with an energising walk above the western shore of lake.

This walk starts off with a 45-minute cruise on board Steam Yacht Gondola on the 11am sailing on Saturday and Sunday mornings from Coniston Boat Landings.

Hop off the boat at Lake Bank jetty for a 12.1km walk, the first half of which takes you across Beacon Fell and then the second half follows the lake shoreline back to your start point at Coniston Boat Landings.

Print off a full description of the Lake Bank trail to take with you. An OS map is also strongly recommended.

Packed lunch option

Save yourself some hassle and order a packed lunch to take on your walk. Made by our friends at the popular Bluebird Café, your lunch will be ready for you to pick up on the boat and will include:

  • Thick cut granary sandwiches filled with hot-smoked salmon with lemon and dill mayo, and local roast ham and damson chutney
  • Cheddar cheese and sun-dried tomato tartlet
  • Cox’s apple
  • Homemade chocolate brownie
  • Carton of orange juice
