Gondola and Brantwood

‘Showcase the world of Swallows and Amazons’ is a combined Gondola cruise and guided, panoramic walk run in partnership with Cumbria Tourist Guides.

This event will be held on the following Saturdays over the summer - 9 August, 23 August and 30 August.

The day starts with a 55 minute cruise on Gondola on the 11am sailing from Coniston Pier to Parkamoor jetty. You will then be guided on a 3.8 mile walk along the east side of Coniston Water to Brantwood where you will reboard Gondola for the return trip to Coniston Pier.

Tickets are £25 per adult or £22.50 to National Trust members. Tickets can be booked online. NT Members must present their membership card along with their ticket when boarding Gondola.

If you want to take children along, please call Cumbria Tourist Guides on 07857 498051 to buy tickets for them. The first child goes free, but you must call to reserve a place for them.

There will be an option to visit Brantwood Gardens at the end of the walk, but the charge is not included in the tour price and will be payable by participants directly to Brantwood.

Stout footwear and outdoor clothing are recommended for the walk and you should bring a packed lunch with you.
