Mooring Gondola

Cruise and walk via Parkamoor and Brantwood.

Pick up the 11am departure from Coniston pier on Saturdays and Sundays, and enjoy a 55 minute cruise before disembarking at Parkamoor on the east shore of the lake.

From here, the 7.5km trail leads through woodland up on to the fells beyond providing wonderful views back down over the lake. The walk continues on to Brantwood where, depending how much time you have, you can take a look around the house, gardens, gallery and cafe before catching Gondola back to Coniston pier via Monk Coniston on either the 2.55pm or 3.55pm sailing.

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